Quick sketches around the house.
I have some paintings by my Great Uncle, Denbigh Hilton, who was a lovely, gentle Unitarian priest, and a couple by my paternal Grandfather, Colin Hilton who was an embittered man who was forced by circumstances to work for years as a clerk when he wanted to paint. In spite of this, he produced many paintings, pastels and watercolours, which are still hanging in the home I grew up in.
The sketching around the house was frustrating, and some was done in my father’s home where I grew up. I find perspective very difficult still. The results below are also in my sketchbook, along with others.
None of these drawings were “fast”. I am too inexperienced still to do much quickly. the last plate was the quickest and is the most careless. By this time I was fed up.
This took me a great deal of effort, making sketches some of which were woefully out of proportion and perspective.
I tried to draw someobjects on the table. but again made mistakes with the proportions
I tried various views and compositions.
I finally did a fine line drawing sitting on the floor, which was better, but took me a very long time.
