A Longer Sketch


Last time I shared a ten minute sketch. This sketch took longer - more like 30 minutes.

When I sketch my color choices are more about value and color temperature then actual local color. I'd like to see some growth in those areas in my art and what better way to do that then practice?

This has got a bit of a look of David Hockney about it!

How big is it Rose? Do try sketching at different sizes - you'll be amazed what an impact if has on your mark-making.

Hi Katherine, it is little - probably 6inx 10in. I will have a go with one of my larger sketchbooks - that would be a good stretch for me.
