Le Flâneur is a French word, which literally means the stroller, the dawdler.
For my work I want to concentrate on older interesting buildings often found in Europe, such as Poland, France and Italy, for research unfortunately I cannot visit these places, but have photo's from Poland and can gather more from the internet and books. I love European townhouses, each one painted different colours, each one with different styles of windows and doors and each one unique and different form each other.
- Instead of doing detailed, intricate drawings I want to do simple line drawings, using a fine liner, fountain pen and continuous line drawings.
- Last year I became interested in watercolours and want to translate this into this brief.
- Drawing one area of the building, such as a window and draw different shapes, styles and sizes repetitively.
- Look for interesting smaller parts of building such as different types bricks, letter box, door bells or door numbers.
