Re: at the fire station

Urban sketching!!! I like it.

Just, and it is probably me, are the proportions correct? Maybe it is me...

Re: at the fire station

Wonderful work! Agree about the proportions but there is so much good stuff to sketch that the artist needs space to work and render all the items

Re: at the fire station

Thank you for your responses.

I love what you did. It is a great sketch. Are you with the UK Urban Sketchers?

My asking was not a criticism, but having difficulties with proportions myself, I wanted to be sure I was seeing it right.

Great sketches of the uniform and the truck! Wonder what that uniform with all the added equipment weighs.

Re: at the fire station

Hi Maria - no I didn't mind your comment I knew I'd elongated it working in the mix of media I'd chosen there wasn't an option to change much! i just went straight in with ink, I never draw in pencil first. It was a really complicted subject so it didn't pay off !

Yes I'm with USKLeicester - a lovely group.

Lucky!
I belong to USK France. I sketch alone (when my arm allows me). No group around where I live - how I would love one...

Re: at the fire station

I have tried, to no avail. I live in a small village.

But that is ok. At least I can say I have tried.
