A Happy Pair
Here is todays apple painting. I struggled with this one a little more than I thought I would. It is the same palette as before. The same kind of canvas. I put myself to the challenge of using two subjects on a square format. I only have about 18 of these canvases to go, so I bet by the time I get done painting all of them I will have learned a thing or two about composition.
The colors are a little off on this. I tried to compensate for the fresh paint glare. It is pretty close. I am going to go ahead and call this one done and put it in quarantine.
A closer look at the same pose. I notice that #art is a lot like writing. The rough sketch is the idea. The second sketch is like the initial edit. The more I draw the same #sketch the more solid the ideas become. I bet the pros know this, but I am just discovering the power of a redraw. #art #artist #sketchbook #drawingvia Instagram
A #gouache #colorstudy using the same pallet. This is an attempt to do an imaginary #landscape and play with #composition. I like atmospheric environments. This is my base to begin thinking about entire scenes and not just the single item drawings that I have been doing. #art #artist #sketchvia Instagram
