|I was at our old cabin for the afternoon, and decided to take my time with an ink sketch of the wood stove as it tried to warm the space...|
|(Yep, this one again!) And of course, I sketched FAST so my breakfast didn't get cold!|
I chose not to add color to that one--it stands on its own.
Breakfast was a whole other matter! I didn't want it to get cold, so just did a very simple outline, with that same pen. THEN I ate, then added color from memory! I think the color defines and explains the shapes, pulling everything together, don't you?
I teach quick-sketching techniques in my mini-classes (Quick Sketching 1 and 2, and Quick Sketching in Color), and do truly enjoy that discipline for any number of reasons...but there are times when I just want to take as long as it takes.
|I took my time here...|
|And hurried to capture the action here...|
What do YOU enjoy most?
