2nd entry for March 29, 2009

These were 15-minute studies. I was still wrestling with scale, but in the bottom one (the last of the evening) I tried something unusual for me: realising that my seated position gave me a distorted view of the top of my drawing board, I slightly compressed the vertical forms at the top of the page as I was drawing. When I stood up, the overall proportions were a little better than ususal.
It was a sort of deliberate anamorphosis.
