This week we are going to sketch some pink camellia flowers. I spent a happy hour sketching these flowers in my garden, and enjoyed reflecting the loose floppy construction of the flower in a loose sketch.
This weeks drawing board is filled with the paintings from my online course over the last 10 weeks. The art classes I was teaching at my local art group had to close down due to the virus, so I decided to move them online.
This week we will be having some fun with colour, using bright pigments to convey an illustrative style. I have created an street scene in a cartoon style where perspective, scale and colour are all distorted slightly to create an sense of altered reality where we can play with strong colours.
This week we have a street scene where the building materials are the same, so the colours are the same, and to give a sense of depth we will use tonal values and colour saturation to give the painting some light and dark areas.
