A week after drawing Breaux Bridge, Iceman thought I should draw something iconic from downtown Lafayette, the St. John's Cathedral. I took a few pictures, but I just wanted to try it out with the highest point of the building. Initially I wanted to sketch it, ink it, and color it just like how I worked with Breaux Bridge. I got carried away with the details while sketching, and ended up having a full pencil sketch instead.I must say, I love pencil sketch, but not with buildings. It's difficult to get an even tone, and straight lines, and it's a lot messier because you need to use rulers and all. It's a lot more fun with water colors IMHO, and I might try to sketch the entire building and color it when I get the time and the mood to do so =)
Thank you all for your encouragement on the Motorcycle Ice Project. A lesson learned indeed and I don't regret doing what I did ^^ It's a great experiment anyway for both Iceman and me. And the postcard thing, I'll keep you guys posted if there is any news as promised.
