Sketching from the Neck Up #15

Bled… Bled… Bled…


Have you ever watched the animated movie, Hotel Transylvania, starring the voice of Adam Sadler as Dracula? Do you recall how humans would tease Dracula on how he talked? “I’m Count Dracula… Bled… Bled… Bled.” Well, okay… it’s actually ‘blah, blah, blah.’ But I really needed a lead off. You see, my next sketch subject is a very old church built on an island on Lake Bled. It’s a pristine lake in the Julian Alps of the Upper Carniolan region of northwestern Slovenia near the border of the Austrian Alps.

The Church of the Assumption of Maria has a 171 ft tower and leading up to it from the shoreline is a Baroque stairway dating from 1655 with 99 stone steps.

The Photoshop I always use is the old 7.0 version. The tools are not as fancy as newer versions but I make do. For this project, I played more around with the smudge tool especially when I worked on the reflection.
