When I’m looking for something to sketch, the cans in the pantry have just as much variety in value, colour and shape as the row of colourful buildings that I painted this summer in Girona, Spain. This was sketched in a Stillman & Birn Beta series, thanks to the generous folks at Avenue des Arts in Montreal. I was in the store yesterday and found out that they will be carrying the Stillman & Birn line in 2014. Great news for fans of these sketchbooks, as they were previously unavailable here.

    Thanks for another great indoor sketching idea! This sketch has a wonderful abstractness to it. It’s all about seeing the values, right! Good news about the sketchbooks.

    I really like how you simplify the labels into shapes. I tend to get too detailed.
    I am going to try this approach and let you know how it works!
