WDE 10 January Challenges and cheeses

Thanks for hosting Kay, I enjoyed the sketching challenge and carried it into the painting which I dont usually do these days but it was such a complicated ref I needed some guide to what to put where.
The pen drawings were done on cartridge paper with a black micron .05 pen and I got a bit engrossed in the brushes and took a few minutes extra
5 x 7 inch sketch book


I cant imagine lining up for 2 hours to buy cheese but we do line up for seafood for Christmas so its horses for courses I guess. This took less than 2 hours and is on paper measuring 12 x 20 inches. The paper is 12 x 20 but the painting stops short on the right.
I did it yesterday at my Tuesday morning group and did not like it much so never looked at it again till now. I dont mind it so much today.

Thanks for looking
All C and C welcome.

Re: WDE 10 January Challenges and cheeses

Gorgeous ink sketches. I love the brushes, that's just so evocative. Good rendering on the hyacinths too. Very graceful lines, very loose and effective. I like your big painting of the cheeses scene, had to smile because I'd never wait for even two minutes for seafood but good cheese might be worth it. Each their own. The scene looks cosy and nostalgic, full of cheer! It's almost Dickensian.

Re: WDE 10 January Challenges and cheeses

I really like both of them. I have done that before with things. When I look at some later I like better and then some do not improve with age. LOL. I would pick some seafood over cheese, but I think hubby would do otherwise.

Re: WDE 10 January Challenges and cheeses

Your sketches are terrific, and in pen too! I soooo admire pen drawings.

Love your painting, very cool composition, your brush work is to die for.

Re: WDE 10 January Challenges and cheeses

The two sketches look very good together because of the contrasting quality of the lines in them. In the cheese sketch you have subtly suggested the perspective of the shop to make a real space for your pile of cheese. It works well.

Re: WDE 10 January Challenges and cheeses

Thanks for joining in Christine . Lovely ink sketches, glad you liked the challenge! Both drawings are lovely, I like the detail of the brushes and the looseness of the hyacinth. I love the cheese painting, you've captured the busy atmosphere of the shop perfectly. (It's only at Christmas that I queue this long for cheese. I always provide the cheese board for Christmas day and I was buying for 9 people this time, and that was a lot of cheese )

Your sketches are great, but the cheese scene is outstanding!

Re: WDE 10 January Challenges and cheeses

I love all of these Christine.

I like how you just suggest the hyacynth. I tried them a little and got bogged down in the detail.

The cheese shop came out very well. Like Mary, I also find that paintings sometimes look better the second day.
