Another observational sketch today. This was done in pencil in my notebook…
A few days later I decided to ink the drawing…
I left the pencil shading in. I like the mixture of ink and pencil. 🙂
Then, after a lot more thought, because I really like ink drawings as they stand, I coloured it using watercolour. I did it mainly, I think, because I need the practice.
Here’s the final image… (I cropped it too because I didn’t like the balance of the original.)
At school when we ask the children to evaluate their work we ask them to think of ‘two stars and a wish’ which means two things which are good and something to work on. So, if I were to do that here I’d say, I like the ink with pencil work I’m doing, I like my attempt at reflections on the table and I wish I could paint with watercolour in a way that I like.
(Oh help – I’ve got more wishes than stars really – I also wish that I could learn to see value accurately in coloured images and I wish that I could choose better colours.)
