Architecture But Not Photography Today

February 01, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

With architectural photography, the rules of composition, proportion and so on, along with the judicious correction of vertical distortion, are also applicable to drawing and painting.

Here's my illustration of Lichfield Cathedral, started on site and completed in the comparative warmth of my studio!

The original is 31 x 28 cm, watercolour onto smooth paper, with detailing in fineliner.

Lichfield is one of the trickier cathedrals to draw, because of the vast amount of fine detail which visually overrides the underlying forms.
