‘Old and New’ project
…churches and ornate architecture
Jane talks us through one of the projects she was given at college. It was simply ‘old and new’.
It could be anything at all that shows something old and something new, it was an easy choice for me as I have always loved churches and ornate architecture. But I didn’t really know much about the new church’s so it was a great way to find out more about them.
Everything I’ve included is from my sketch book of ideas to the finished piece.
Picking your sketch book…
The sketch book I used is an A4 spiral bound and the paper is 150gsm with a slight tooth to the surface. As you will see I have used several different mediums for this project and the paper in the sketch book handles each one really well.
When you are choosing a sketch book feel the paper to make sure you are happy with the surface and that it’s going to handle whatever you throw at it.
