  1. This one is fascinating. I love how it starts off with realistic perspective toward the bottom, then moves into a more expressionistic sense of spacial depiction toward the top.

    I have to ask: are you drawing these from direct observation, photographic observation, from memory, or are you ‘tracing over’ images on your iPad?

    • Hi Gabriel, it’s a mix of all these elements and also my experience as an artist for nearly thirty years. In this case I took a picture during a visit in Brussels two weeks ago. I already had the drawing in mind. I used tracing only for scaling purposes at the start of the drawing. I could do without this help, but then it would have cost me more time. I believe you should use all technology that is available. But also, I still believe in craftmanship. I love the technique and the personal touch. No photograph can beat that feeling.
