I know how hard it is to get back into a routine after attending a workshop . How do you put into practice all you learned? The only way I know is to ..... Yup ! you guessed it , Practice ....
Here is some of what I have practiced this week along with putting some color washes on my sketches.
This is a 1/2 sheet which I divided off with masking tape and focused on shapes . I used my sketchbook as a reference as well as my photos. No drawing just focusing on shapes ( whoops! I did draw on the sketch on the far right)
I know this one has nothing to do with Maine it is just what I felt like practicing today , again thinking shapes and not things.
I also put some color on my sketches .
Remember to always go back to what you know . Sketch simply , Use a limited palette , practice brush strokes (learn what your brush can do ) Think focal point , values , composition and HAVE FUN while you are practicing and paint what you love and love what you paint .
If I can help you in any way please email me . I can help you via email, Skype or FaceTime . Till Next time " Keep your brush wet and your sketchbook by your side "
