Value sketch for “Corner”Posted: November 10, 2012
I am hoping to do some larger paintings this winter so this little sketch, done in washes of Payne’s gray, is the first step. I tried to do the full-size painting in my car but there is just not enough room to have a bigger sheet on my lap so I will try it again in studio.
The advantage of doing this little sketch first is that I can figure out where my lights and darks will be, as well as work out any compositional problems. There is one thing that I would like to change here. The back part of the stop sign on the foreground pole gets mixed in with the windows on the building in back of it, so I may adjust that in the final drawing. And if the painting is not too much of a disaster, I will post it.
