Excited to see that Liz and Borromini have a Sketching Architecture blog. I enjoy seeing her wonderful drawing and rendering style. In this image she is using markers to add color to her architectural drawings. Here is a quote from Liz “This blog is devoted to my architectural sketching adventures and musings about the integration of architecture and sketching. I hope not only to share my own on-location architectural sketches but provide tips and methodologies for sketching and understanding architecture. Also, most importantly, I wish to explore ways in which, in a digital age, we can not only defend but promote freehand sketching within the architectural profession.”
Take a look at the sketch image series below where she is developing her composition.
Here are two smaller sketches. Note in the first one, she establishes the perspective view. You can see her eye level which is the horizon line and the perspective lines below. She also includes the step progression. In the second image she demonstrates how she is establishing the proportion of the building. Check out her other drawings and sketches from Rome, Venice, Bologna, New York & UK on her blog Sketching Architecture.
