Birko sewing shopping

December 15, 2011 | 2 Comments

A quick 15min sketch and paint of an empty food hall at Birko (Birkenhead Point shopping centre) after getting some sewing supplies for my ambitious holiday plans.

Two things about this spread are related to my current thinking for my upcoming summer holidays(vacation) sketchbook.

  1. Quick sketch of some of my purchases when I got home… I did think about doing these at the time while sitting at the table in the food court..and do think that I should have done so. I really want to try to finish pages as much as I possibly can before I come home…even if I sit in the car and do it before driving home. The finishing off of pages is HARD work when I am travelling and I do find it tedious when I am at home. It would be nice to be able to relax in the evening.
  2. Thinking about composition – not filling the entire page but leaving space for text and a secondary sketch… Also thinking about adding grids/lines as texture… Maybe even pre-draw these lines on the page?
