BTP - CLIFTON
For the first time with these BTP images, I drew this scene on location rather than from photographs. Although working from photos can yield nice results with captured individuals or unique distorted perspectives (particularly when photographed in narrow streets by an amateur with a cameraphone) for me, being there in the flesh was a liberating experience. If I couldn't figure out some of the details I would just roll in there and have a better look, none of this mega pixel shizzle. The only problem to come from standing there in the street, squinting at an illuminated sheet of bright white bristol board reflecting the sun at your chin, you look like an idiot!
