Irongate - Drawing 2

This is the whole area of the composition. I have yet to decide upon the placing of figures, but at this stage it's unimportant. My main aim was to roughly put down the buildings...as i work on each one, I usually redraw with more accuracy .Good draughtsmanship is the key to understanding how to render an image, weather it is a figurative subject such as the one I'm working on here, or an abstract...it's the method of laying down a skeleton upon which to hang the ink/paint/collage etc...Take a look at the preparatory drawings of Julie's to see how a painter goes about starting a new piece.

I've already added dots to this piece today (not shown here)..I'll post the progress later for you to see.

Tys...I do have a website from which you can purchase prints ( nialleyoung.com )the link is on the top left of the blog...however, it's badly in need of updating and thus doesn't have any recent stuff on..if you want to order any specific prints, i'm sure I can arrange to supply what you want.

DM...I know you do, you have a good eye for builings and composition...
