My current city obsession is Copenhagen. I’ve been interested in drawing it for a while as the cityscape contains a lot of architectural styles that appeal to me. Here’s the first drawing:

I considered tackling several different views of the city before deciding on this one; I liked the way the Slotsholmen canal opens up the scene and the way the skyline is dominated by the Christiansborg Palace on the left hand side. I left the building shapes between the key areas fairly simple to help draw the eye to the more intricate areas but I think the next piece of Copenhagen will probably bring the rooftop shapes further into the foreground as they are one of the more charming aspects to the city.
