Perspective Study for Personal Currency

For my perspective study for personal currency, I chose a building that has a lot of personal significance to me. This is an estate house approximately five minutes from my house in North Andover Massachusetts. It is a place where my parents would take me and my brother for picnics as a child, and eventually where my best friend and I did our first photoshoot together. I designed and made her and outfit, one of the only ones I have ever sold to others, and she modeled it in this location. Ever since that day we have been going back to this same location to explore the grounds and take more photos of my latest designs. It has become a staple in my artwork and a place where I have not only watched myself grow but also had the pleasure of watching my best friend and model grow as well. I started the process by looking up images of this building, The Steven’s Estate, and picked my favorite angle. I chose a two point perspective because it made the building look dominating and as important as it is to me. I moved on to creating a pencil drawing with a 4H, and then lastly cleaned the lines up by going over them with Micron pen. This building is symbolic of the things I value most, my artwork and my friendships, therefore it is the perfect architecture to display on the back of my personal currency.
