  • The Basilica, Venice - pencil drawing by Peter Woolley

    The Basilica, Venice

    £25

    Sometimes it's good to lose yourself in an architectural challenge such as this, The Basilica of Saint Mark, which takes a prominent position at the Eastern end of St Peters Square in Venice.

    Drawing it is an exercise in close observation and patience. My approach to such complexity is always to establish a few simple guidelines and create a reasonably accurate skeleton layout before applying any shading at all. This remains one of the toughest drawings I think I've ever undertaken... very satisfying, though.

    An in-depth video demonstration of me drawing the sketch is featured on the Painting Venice DVD.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

    ORIGINAL PENCIL DRAWING
    Almost all watercolour paintings produced by Peter Woolley are developed from pencil
 sketches made on-site or in the studio. In the course of that development, further working sketches
 are often produced in order to explore the subject and work towards a final, satisfactory
 composition. This drawing is a unique document; if it has been used in the process of creating a finished watercolour, it may contain marks of handling or even spots of watercolour. Such marks should not considered flaws; instead, they should be thought of as an integral part of the character of the drawing. To protect
 its integrity, the artist has signed and dated it on the reverse.

    This original drawing has been produced on 160lb smooth, white paper, with a 2B graphite pencil. For drawing dimensions, please see the main information panel above. The price quoted is for the drawing to be supplied to you unframed, in protective packaging with rigid backing panel, ready to take to a framer. A quote for framed work will be provided on request.
