Project 7: Townscape with Buildings and Figures

As I was down Manchester I decided to take a camera with me and took loads of photographs around Manchester City Centre and around Stockpot I also bought a small A5 watercolour hardback pad which I bought from and art shop near Stockport College which is where I did a Graphic Design course a few years back. I don’t like sketching outdoors so I got the smallest book I could get; I sketched on location and later on added some watercolour. I’m only just getting use to using watercolour as I prefer acrylics but it’s a lot of mucking around taking all my acrylics with me on location it’s a lot easier with watercolours. For most of the of the  sketches I have also taken a photograph for reference from a similar position which I have also shown. I didn’t really do a lot of sketching as I wanted to get as many photographs as I could so I could work from them when I got back home. I have decided I will go to Stockport and the galleries today and I will head into Manchester and take some photographs tomorrow before coming home. I’m not sure what type of photographs I need so I’m just going to take loads.
