Here I'm getting into the line sketch, while dodging cars in the narrow street. Photo by Meagan Burns, the creative force behind our sponsor, Art Leap Adventures.
|Here's the finished line sketch. It's a "straight to ink" sketch (no pencil pre-drawing) using a PITT Artist Pen (permanent brown ink) in a Moleskine A4 Watercolor Album.|
A richer orange on the central building, which will provide a nice complement to the Teal Blue sky. I also added a little Alizarin Crimson accent to the tower while the Naples Yellow was still wet.
A graded wash, mostly Alizarin Crimson, on the building at left to pull the viewer's eye toward the central focal point. The blue at bottom left is just wonky lighting in the photo.
Starting to add some color to details, remembering to leave the center of the drawing as white space.
