Sketch 3 – Night Light

img_0056

This sketch is of a metal night light. Again, a one hour sketch.

Lessons learned: work faster! It doesn’t matter if the shape is perfectly correct, its the colours and the effects that we are after, not a perfect representation. Maybe keep the “shiny” parts freer of pencil and watercolour glaze to make it look shinier.

Sketch 2 – Window at Blaise Castle

img_0050

This one was a 1 hour sketch – I’m trying to limit the time I spend on these sketches so that they are quick to do and also so I don’t “overdo” them. I want them to be as free and fun as possible!

Lessons learned from this sketch: I couldn’t get the colour of the stone right, but that doesn’t matter here. Used a lot of salt on the sketch to try and get some texture in the stone, and it sort of worked in places.

New year, new habits

I’ve decided to _try_ to post a sketch every day, and so far this year I’ve managed it fairly well.  Ive been posting them to Instagram and Facebook, but it probably takes more sense to post them here and then share them to Instagram etc.

I will post them here again so they are at least on the blog! So here above is Sketch 1 – a watercolour sketch (of some watercolour…geddit?)
