Adding a bit of dramaPosted: May 3, 2014
Sometimes scanning a sketch or painting allows me to see things I might not have previously noticed, like in this sketch of the windmill in Pointe Claire. The sky was very dark and dramatic at the horizon line today but I didn’t really paint it dark enough(see the top version). After scanning it a first time, I went back and rewet and darkened the sky, let it dry and then scanned it again. The difference is subtle but I think it adds a bit of drama and also helps in separating the sky from the lake.
