Welcome to part fifteen of my Morning Coffee & Sketch series, in honour of keeping the momentum I have another sketch and have ingested another ton of caffeine since the last post yesterday!
For this sketch I decided to use the sanguine pastel pencil again on the watercolour paper that I stained with the nut brown ink a while back, it’s a nice feeling working on a toned paper the form just seems to appear immediately.
Anyway, here is this morning’s sketch –
This time around I had a much better white conte pencil but the camera on my phone hasn’t picked it up in the sketch very well which is unfortunate.
These ruins appealed to me as soon as I saw them, I love old ruins and castles and it’s an area I need to study in some more depth so that I can go onto design castles of my own creation for artworks that are believable to the viewer.
As for this particular ruin though, it may well appear silhouetted in the background of a later artwork rather than being the focal point of one.
That’s all for this morning; if you haven’t already then subscribe to my blog if you wish to stay updated when I post; the subscribe via email box is located further down this page!
Until next time, farewell!
