Can you believe this sun! Tuesday was great and then cloudy until today. I was able to catch a sketch Tuesday morning. I did the line work of the house and tree across the street. I thought I would wait until the next morning to add color. But to my dismay it was cloudy. So I waited...and waited... and waited until this morning which was the first sunny day again in 4 days.
These were done on a very inexpensive sketchbook Canson Mixed Media sketchbook. 98 lb paper.
It was recommended to me by Daniel Smith as a cheap alternative sketchbook for the summer sketching class I teach at the UW. The paper is thin but not bad. The washes come out okay. It is not one where I would add a lot of water. The paper does wrinkle so it is hard to do wet on wet.
Great Tree! I love how the color really makes the tree stand out.ReplyDelete
The light was strong, good contrast so keeping the trunk white was a good way of describing it.
