Vertical Slice

April 4, 2014


I’ve never tried flipping a landscape format book this way. It seemed to suit the vertical subject. But it certainly makes an awkward sketch. I’m not sure I like the effect all that much, but you have to try things out :)

This is Morrice Hall, formerly the Presbyterian College, on the downtown McGill campus. The view is looking out from the second floor cafeteria windows across the street.  Washable fountain pen ink and watercolor, Handbook watercolor sketchbook.

You can see the snow is still hanging around here – but it’s down to one and a half coats weather.

    You might be unsure about it, but I really like the vertical format. Suits the cathedral very well. And your rendering is amazing!

    Wonderful! Sometimes extreme vertical format is hard to manage but it really comes to the heart once realized a sketching like yours.

    If you really do not like the effect so much, I am ready to shelter this beautiful piece of sketch :)
