Coles Bay, Mathinna Falls & The Cataract Gorge.
Long, tall vertical drawings are quite a challenge because of their elongated (skinny) proportions.
You either look at such drawings from the ‘bottom up’, or the ‘top down’.
They are of such a ‘vertical’ nature, that it’s important to included some horizontal lines and shapes to get the balance right.
However you tackle a composition of this shape, you will always have a strong, vertical feel. That need not be a problem, as it all depends on what you’re drawing.
Next week I’ll talk about ‘panorama’ compositions, wide drawings that encourage subjects with great depth.
