Tenement, Pollokshields, Glasgow

I was commissioned to draw an elevation and section through this tenement in Pollokshields, Glasgow. It’s the first time I have drawn a section through a tenement close, the communal area between flats, incorporating the entrance, stairwell and landings. This tenement has wonderful tiles lining the walls all the way up to the top, a signifier of its status when built, some in the city only have tiles in the entrance hall, and are painted further up; others are entirely painted.
