It’s always a challenge to come up with a new ‘take’ for Cafe Wednesday drawing. Among the many drawing blogs that are now available online I’ve read an interesting post from UK illustrator Lynne Chapman, on Sketches that Sing. Lynne suggests several ways to free up your sketching. I’ve used her approach that ignores ‘local’ colour and instead draws the focus of the sketch in warm colours and the remainder of the work in cool colours. The idea is that if you get your tones right then you can pretty much do what you like with colour.
While I still need to work on my composition aspect, I’m liking the colour approach.
