Hampton Court Palace by Peter Taylor Ward

Lockdown’s no problem when you have a project on the go!

Not that this is a recent piece but it is definitely an idea to keep you busy for a while if you’re feeling a little bored.

This 5 foot pencil drawing of Hampton Court Palace was a challenge Peter set himself a few years ago that took over 2 weeks to complete. Depicting the full facade of the Thames-side Palace, he was keen to include as much detail as possible. Although he decided not to draw every brick!

This beautiful and fascinating building, famous for being the one-time residence of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, is just down the road from us so collecting reference for the artwork was not a problem. Then, working from a series of photographs and sketches, Peter used his draughtmanship skills to stitch them together, correcting the photo’s skewed perspsectives with paper, pencil and ruler. No CAD here, no. Very old school!!
