 :thankyou: Kathy, Steve, Mea, Patricia. I plan to draw various street scenes of Martinique to practice perspective. :smiley6600:

Drawing roads are so good for practicing perspectives. This is an initial freehand sketch of an enchanting road with a bus stop and far off hills in a place called Cas pilot. I have started to like drawing human figures.
Line wash will follow by day light.

The lesson about perspective with Dennis is so informative and important to go through.

Gita,

I love your drawings.  The landscape perspective looks good, but your people seem too large for their surroundings.  They are very well drawn, though.

Now you are inspiring me to do more people drawing.

Mea, thank you so much for mentioning this! You are right!  :flowers: See what I did, made the light poles and trees taller. I think the light poles may be about  two and a half times taller than a human.  :idea:
I had added the people from other photos, so I did not have a proportional photograph to compare.

Correcting the lines is only possible by scraping out the paper carefully. I decided to do this sort of change.

These pictures are good for perspective learning...! :painting:

BTW Mea, I am looking forward to the December Newsletter!  :cheering:

Win, I think the woman standing at the busstop has a towel on her shoulders and I think she's prepared to go for a swim in the beach. I see many people in the evenings dressed and carrying a towel. She's also carrying an umbrella since it's raining on and off.

Now it's painted.

Would love to hear opinions, comments, suggestions....

 :clap: Gita, Your drawings just get better and better. I love the scene and the people. (They are tall, aren't they). Your feel for color and free expression is something I admire.  :clap:

Love the colored version, Gita.  Lots of excitement in it.

The foreground spatter looks a bit large - maybe litter dropped by the tall people.

I plan on doing the December newsletter over the next few days.  Thanks for asking.

aloha

quote mea hamo pena: The foreground spatter looks a bit large - maybe litter dropped by the tall people. :2funny:

My personal touch to the paintings, Mea, I like this splatter, makes it even more colourful.
But just to comment: Martinique is a rather clean place. Even the beaches.

 :thankyou: Danielle, Kathy.

Thanks Dennis, Maybe the people are not always that tall..like in the drawling :whistle:  :2funny: Due to the slavery history, I find many people here well built. Gullivers relatives  :2funny:
I get the point - I shall get the proportions right of the people :2funny: Also the colours are a bit muddy, have to take care if that....

This is a woman selling rum. I omitted drawing all the bottles not to distract attention from her face.
