Drawing exercises, looking exercises (9)

After this morning’s swim, I thought I’d try the rooftops exercise again. This time, I tried to focus on the shapes and the direction of the angles and lines. Is the angle at 2 o’clock? Is the angle going upwards or downwards, away from me or towards me? Simple questions but for some reason not easy for my eye (or brain!) to work out.

I then used a water brush over the ink lines to establish the shadows before putting a coloured wash. The colours got a bit murky.

I think the initial ink only drawing was probably better. And so I redrew it a second time, this time with no coloured wash.
