On Sketching and Color...
Just a quick hello and to share what I've been working on in my sketchbook.
This sketch is just graphite pencil with a blending stump.
I've been trying to figure out why my graphite pencil sketches look more realistic, but when I use paints my faces look more whimsical.
I'm guessing it has something to do with learning to blend with paint.
I don't have a problem with whimsical at all, in fact I rather like it.
I just want to understand so I can learn to use different techniques.
These are some of my favorite watercolor pencils by
Next, I'm going to try to see if I can "blend" with the watercolor pencils on sketchbook paper. I think the watercolor paper makes blending more difficult, but I'm just guessing.
Speaking of color...
This was our sky at dusk yesterday evening.
I love when it does this...it makes the whole atmosphere "pink."
Thanks for dropping by,
hope your week is going well!
