Chapel Commission WIP

After many, many practice drawings, I am finally getting somewhere. Let me know what you think so far. Please make suggestions. I really have trouble with buildings, they are not as soft and forgiving as animals.

Looking good. I have a tip. The tiles should at least be parallel to the top of the roof. Actually the tile lines should each be drawn to the vanishing point.

Looks great Susan. I do agree with Mr. Just about the tiles. I would never have noticed it myself but once he pointed it out I could see it. That's the beauty of doing a work-in-progress catching little things like that.

This is going to be a wonderful picture.

Thanks Just and Terry. I thought I actually had the tiles in line with the roof but on closer inspection I can see I missed. I became more concerned with the swirl pattern they exhibit and lost the angle of the roof. Any hints for how to accomplish? Any tricks of the trade?

I don't have any tricks of the trade but I honestly don't do buildings if I can help it. I don't enjoy drawing them.

I probably would pull the ruler out and try to make very light lines running at the same angle of the roof line all the way down and then put in my roof tiles using those guidelines. Overall though this looks like a lovely piece.

Technically you'd place one end of the ruler on the vanishing point and use it for a pivot while moving the other end to each new tile line.

I think I'm understanding. But not sure. Going to be interested to see this. I'm definitely learning something here.

Yes..I did the vanishing point years ago and did it for basic buildings. So you are correct. That is part of the reason why I hate buildings..lol.
