The old pillar box

carlisle town hall 8x6 painted reduced

This is terrific Gerry. I’ve seen it progressing on the Forum, and have said before I really like the way you’ve drawn the pavement stones, and that super red pillar box. A complex scene, very well drawn.

A fascinating old building and pillar box - excellent drawing!

A skilled drawing, Gerry, super work, young man.

You have such patience.... nice one Gerry

Thank you all for your thoughts. I'm enjoying the complexities of the scenes I'm capturing at the moment, so it's good to receive encouragement. Thank you

Very good. I like the highlighted post box.

Very effective and lots of tricky perspectives too!

Lovely and the post box is a great touch.

Lovely drawing of this old pillar box and town hall, great perspective too!

Thank you all. Wonderful perspective challenge, including paving sloping down towards the stairways, then flattening out but sloping to the right, as can be seen by the differing pillar base heights. Then curved steps, lol. Then slight aerial perspective to make the building recede. Most enjoyable to capture.

Beautifully rendered. The monochromatic backdrop is so effective in showcasing that lovely old pillar box.

Fantastic drawing Gerry

A fabulous drawing Gerry.

Thank you everyone
