Ao final da tarde de Sábado decidi sentar-me na praça em frente à catedral e fazer mais um registo deste local. A monumentalidade da fachada barroca é impressionante… Não tenho paciência para registos muito demorados. Normalmente procuro mais registar a impressão que tenho do local, dos edifícios, a dinâmica do movimento das pessoas, entre outros. Aqui achei que apenas a linha era suficiente para apresentar este espaço. Adicionei um registo áudio do burburinho que paira na praça.
Santiago de Compostela, Espanha, 24.03.2012
I’m gonna make it there one day.
I like your economy of line and your composition.
Suggestion: Try to splash a hint of color. Just blue for the sky or red for the wall on the left.
Thank you Marcia!
Thanks Rafal. There are some drawings you shouldn’t mess with… the line is the only medium of expression here. Adding color will not add any usefull information to the image…
Fair enough. You are right, the composition is particularly strong to stand on its own.
Thank you Irwin
Excelente, Thiago. Me parece un dibujo maravilloso.
Great ! I love what seems to me lie a shepherd with his stick, gazing skeptically at the scene. Always this touch in your sketches 🙂
Thank you dayisaday! They sell those sticks all over Santiago to the tourists…
Excelente dibujo, magníficamente definido el complejo motivo con el trazo justo. Enhorabuena Tiago!
Muchas gracias Alex!
I agree that colour is not needed and that the composition is strong. I love it. But I want to know if, sketching outside the cathedral, you decided that this was enough, no more needed, or did you run out of time? Or did it start raining?
Thank you billbtw for your comment. Yes, that decision was made outside the cathedral and it wasn’t because of the weather or out of time. I simply decided to stop at this point. The contrast and composition was enough to convey what I wanted.
