                Getting Started
1. Begin by drawing in
pencil a sketch of the
European street scene
shown below as a simple
line drawing. Set up the
perspective showing
vanishing points and
horizon lines, etc. Do this
drawing on a sheet of
yellow tracing paper.
               Getting Started

2. Add elements and
adjust the composition on
the tracing paper. Do not
worry at this point about
shades and shadows. This
should be a simple line
drawing at this point.
                 Getting Started

3. Transfer the drawing to
the white bond paper using
graphite paper. It is still a
line drawing at this point.
                Getting Started

4. Add textures, elements,
shades and shadows. Do
not “over render” the
drawing. Use the white of
the paper to give value and
contrast to the drawing.
This will add a 3-
dimensional quality to
your work.
