Clock Tower Sketch

got the shape of the top wrong on the large one, so had to try again (the small one).

These golden tops were tricky, because painting them I needed to shadow yellow. Yellow is a difficult color to darken. I did have my valiant Payne’s gray with me, but just for the sake of art I painted the tops with three primaries (in this case, transparent lemon yellow, quinacridone rose and indanthrone blue). Basically, I used violet to neutralize yellow.

Gospel Cathedral, Kharkiv

The name sounds different in Ukrainian, I translated it for clarity. I continue to share my oldies with you guys; this one dates back to last summer. The funny thing about this sketch is that I initially forgot to draw the bell tower! Just like that: forgot! Had to add it later at home *^_^*
