Portrait VS scenery (sketchbook)

Here are some sketches on my sketchbook from today. I like doing both scenery/landscape or portrait. This scenery sketch is a study from Judd Mercer's watercolor painting. BTW, I always put notes on every sketch in my sketchbook.

Thank you, Doug. Recently I'm so busy. It is very hard to find perfect time for even doing sketches like this.

Re: Portrait VS scenery (sketchbook)

These sketches and notes are interesting. I agree - preserve whites (paper) if practical (sometimes gouache does the trick). I sometimes establish the lightest light (other than paper) and the darkest dark (which may not necessarily be "black") from the onset, and then I have established the value scale - its very useful. This will vary depending where the painting lies in terms of high-key vs. low-key approach.

Re: Portrait VS scenery (sketchbook)

Hi John. I agree with you. My darkest tones are usually either warm dark or cool dark, depending on the scene and mood of want to create. And regarding values, I often make very, very rough notan sketch on my phone or on my sketchbook for the purpose of study.

Re: Portrait VS scenery (sketchbook)

I enjoyed both your sketches. Please keep posting them. They brighten up the day. I like your idea of keeping notes on the sketches. I did it for a long time on paintings in my painting notebook. Now I take a picture of the painting, print it, make all the notes on that copy and put it my painting file. I still use the painting notebook for my design notes such as the proposed palette for the painting and what design to use, etc...

Rabbitone, very true. Visual notes are very important. They can be in the form physical notes or just simply mental notes.

Re: Portrait VS scenery (sketchbook)

Thanks, Jan. Yeah, we can actually call it doodle because it is only 5 or 10 minutes for each sketch.
