Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. graphite pencil

What are you most proud of? getting all the lines pointing in the correct direction to make it look acurate. the vanishing point seemed to change as the buildings went further down the river.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? look at the pic from a distance sometimes

[criticism continued] You are probably right to observe that the vanishing point changed as you went from one building to the next. Most likely this is due to the fact that the buildings are not parallel to each other; therefore, they have slightly different vanishing points. Getting back from you drawing from time to time is valuable advice. It is also difficult to remember when we are in the midst of making art.

This is just delightful to me. I should like to know where it is in this world. I love the reflections in the river as well as the buildings. Thank you for sharing your work.

I love the foreground attention to detail. I hope you spray this with fixative and hang it up to remember your trip by. It is truly exquisite. I am not really worried about the buildings' variances in perspective. No one will pick that out when they view it...unless they are accomplished artists.
