A Restoration of Old and Abandoned Houses

A Restoration of Old and Abandoned Houses - student project

I was really excited to learn Urban Sketching  and had an idea to 'restore' abandoned and old houses for this project.

Here are my works:

Note: I really like the absence of ruler that makes the lines look more natural and rough. I was confused though with the shadow and would really love to learn shadow theory if possible. ^__^

Thank you so much Julia for this class! I learned a lot and looking forward to explore your next One-point Perspective class!

Kind regards,
