I’m trying some serious colour for a new series of sketches. Done on 300gsm Aquarelle Arches. Good solid strong colour.
Mask off the area and get the acrylic paint ready.
Because I’m looking through my sketches for good compositions I don’t need to do any drawing or indications on the paper at all. I like to keep a real spontaneity about my work especially if it’s not the first time I’ve done a subject.
Then it’s a matter of blocking in the big areas with acrylic paint, and following with small shapes. Finally the black pen gets ready for it’s star performance. Go. No turning back now. Whee.
And there it is. It’s on an easel for all to see – and comment on.
