The lift tower, Northampton 

4B pencil


I want to try to work out the detail at the top of the lift tower but it’s hard to get near enough without ending up looking up at it. When you look from a distance it seems quite a simple shape but nearer you can see that’s not the case, especially at the top. In this sketch the lift tower is too short!
