Buildings have always been an anathema to me, well – unless I can draw them in a very scribbly, lazy sort of way (maybe looking back at the Rome sketchbook will show that perhaps I wasn’t ALWAYS afraid of tackling buildings). But to give them personality, play with the reality of them, treat them as if they are a living, breathing organic kind of thing – that is what I am trying to do here. I will do more, it was fun but I am not yet totally happy with the result.
This image is based on a building in Southend, towards the Thorpe Bay end. Seafronts always have lots of buildings with personality, don’t they?
