Sketching complicated roof forms

120218 Crazy Roof Extension
This was a very challenging roof to draw! But rather than stressing about getting the perspective perfect, I am starting to be confident that my loose linework and paint can sometimes hide the wonkiness. The question is how much wonkiness can you get away with?

I like to drive around suburban blocks looking for houses that catch my eye. Sketching from the comfort and security of my car!

Many hideously overscaled new houses…so this one stood out this afternoon and it also fits in with the USK AUS monthly theme of Roofscapes. Yes…. we have decided to have our own monthly theme…for more details visit our flickr or facebook.

I think I will try some more complicated roofscapes in the next few weeks.
