This is my second sketch based on the photos I took on my way to LUXcity in Christchurch last year. It’s the companion piece to City Lights. The end result is not quite what I had in mind when I started sketching. It’s full of unexpected outcomes — and I’m okay with that.

    Beautiful once again Anna 🙂 None from me again this week, I am changing over to self hosted. Maybe it will give me a chance this week to get a few done 🙂

    The site blocks my “likes”, maybe because I blocked cookies and pop-ups? But I like it (your sketches, not cookies and pop-ups. Well, real cookies I also like)

      I’m glad you like my sketch. Sorry you’ve had trouble with the ‘like’ option. I’ve had some trouble liking other blog posts recently too – no idea why.

      And now, for some strange reason, I’m craving cookies : )

    I love how the buildings are linear and black and white, and how the sunset bleeds into some of the buildings. It’s such a contrast, and each one makes the other stand out in different ways. Brilliant.

      Thanks : ) I really like the way the sunset washes over the buildings too. It’s not something I originally planned to do — but it’s now my favourite thing about the sketch.

        I like that bit too especially. A combination of tight and loose drawing. Its very nice Anna Cull and I like seeing the photo next to it.
