SuggestionsPosted: October 7, 2014
In my college classes this week we’re exploring the history of typography, the shapes of letters and the origins of present day fonts. That really has nothing to do with my sketch but it did get me thinking about how I deal with lettering in paint. I was once told that it’s better to suggest the letters rather than paint them in fully — in other words let the viewer fill in the blanks. I haven’t used much detail in this sketch but because of the colour and shape of the containers and the odd letter here and there, it’s pretty easy to tell what’s inside the packaging.
