Indiana State Capitol from Monument Circle....Controlled freehand in ink, pencil and Prismacolor (www.prismacolor.com) on yellow tracing paper. Final version of the preliminary studies shown below for the Indiana Economic Development Corporation.
Intermediate Stage Study...Uses the same media as described above but begins to explore the atmospheric qualities of the drawing. Day or night? Spring, autumn or winter? Level of detail in the entourage? Hmmmm....decisions, decisions.
First Stage Study...the basic compositional bones. Click on the image to enlarge and you can see a lot of the preliminary pencil work. I actually like this as much as the final image shown at the top of this post.
