Église Saint SacrementPosted: February 6, 2015
It was a good change today to dig into my painting bag and pull out my drawing pens. I haven’t used them for a while and was relieved to find that they haven’t dried out. I have to admit it’s a different type of looking that goes on when you do this kind of sketch. Instead of comparing and contrasting shapes, you think more about different types of wiggly lines to describe the wires or the stone or the metal fence. In my case, the line always goes down before the wash. That’s because if I paint first, I tend to outline the contours of the paint shapes, but if I draw first, what I hope to achieve is a little offset between the line and the wash that makes the sketch more dynamic.
