A Limited Palette Study

For this exercise I immediately thought of the interesting alleyway I captured earlier. As it was a rainy day, there wasn’t a lot of colour around, other than the grey clouds and pavements so this seemed like the obvious choice.

Although it is quite simply sketched, and far from perfect,  I think the vertical and horizontal lines make it an interesting composition. I like that it is quite minimal with little detail, and it is the shape of the buildings that make it interesting. I missed out a drain pipe because I thought too many verticals would make it seem unbalanced.

I’ve tried to give it a sense of depth by adding more detail to the furthest wall at the back so that your eye is led to it via the curving pathway.
