Re: Still Life Sketches

Something I want to mention is that these are done on the backside (the inside) of food container cardboard. The color of the cardboard is warm in nature.

Re: Still Life Sketches

I like these, I also like to draw on toned paper/card it helps so much having that neutral, usually warm tone you work well with these mediums

Re: Still Life Sketches

Thank you Cliff. I'm finding that not having to worry about the background color let's me focus on the abstract. I'm only wanting to express what I see, and then STOP (if I can).

Re: Still Life Sketches

Thank you Keith and Mary. I'm finding myself more attracted to muted colors.

Here is a little charcoal sketch I just finished. Mushrooms!

Re: Still Life Sketches

I like the rough, limited pallet style of these very much

one suggestion: use a pencil for your sig rather than charcoal

Re: Still Life Sketches

For some reason I thought it would cheating or lying to use a pencil because it wasn't the medium used to make the art.
