I took a quick visit today, was really impressed by the broomielaw/clyde street panorama illustration in its full scale, how long does a piece like that take you alan?
I really wish i had a recognisable style of drawing like yourself.

the drawing took about 10 days in all Russell and was done for our submission for the bridge project. It's actually been cropped and stretches to the Briggait but the cantilever was too much for the exhibition space at the scale we wanted, so it stops at St Andrews Catherdral.

There are two drawings all thogether, long perspective and cross perspective. The cross perspective has not yet been on show.

Anyway thanks for all your responses to my invitation, your details have been forwarded to the Lighthouse and you will get a response................if not let me know.

Ooops dunno what happened but I posted a response on here last night but for some reason Skyscrapercity decided to crash and looks like it took my response with it. Answer is yes please Alan. Can't turn down an opportunity to see one of your hand drawn magnum opus's! Will PM you my details if it is not too late!

Cheers

^^^ I never get tired of that perspective. A true touch of class.

I can see what you mean about drawing style Russell, that drawing above has a very unique feel to it.

Would indeed love to see the new one aswell!

Sorry if my silence came across as a tad ignorant, I haven’t been able to respond any sooner due to the fact that I have been down in Bristol all week, so unfortunately I’ve been out of the loop for the past few days. Alan, I would most certainly be interested in coming along to your multifaceted exhibition. Haven’t actually been back to the Lighthouse since 1999 believe it or not! In particular it would be great to admire your fantastic draughtsmanship skills in the flesh. That is an absolute stoater of a perspective drawing! Good to see the old order is still going strong, not submitting to the ‘CAD’ design tool monopoly, or CGI like everyone else in these types of trades. The only problem is that I will be down in Pompey from the Wednesday and will only get back up the road on Friday, so I’m afraid it will be a bit touch and go to see if I can make it or not!

Thanks again for your kind offer, and I’ll send you through my details via PM…

Looking at the detail included and the fines pen-manship, Id say at least a good few metres! Im sure it says somewhere in one of the threads but its too difficult to find now theres no search facility :(
