WDE Sept 26-Red Cups

Thanks for all those great pics, Lin!!

I went with the couple on the beach. Intriguing to me thinking of all they've been through together.

I did another graphite mainly because of time constraints. This is approx. 6.5x5.5. I used colored pencil on the cups for surprise/shock value. Creates interest.

C&C welcome. Thanks for looking and commenting!

Done at around 1 1/2 hrs.

Deano, I love this, you nailed them and the red cups make a perfect foil.

It's a very British scene. The cups full of tea is of course of great importance. This tells an appropriate story. Great drawing.

Re: WDE Sept 26-Red Cups

Very effective use of the red cups! Love this sketchy technique, too!

Wonderful sketch. Cups could be tea, but who knows at the beach...

Re: WDE Sept 26-Red Cups

Striking sketch, you made a great decision on those red cups! They draw the eye but not too much, it's perfect balance.
