more fun with sketching

I am still trying to figure out how to do a sketch-sketch, I mean not the painting-like sketch. I was used to painting watercolors before I started sketching, and I find myself filling up the paper with stuff like I did with painting. The only difference for me is that I work much faster and don 't polish my sketches. I will keep on sketching and sooner or later I'll get it right.

Don't beat your self up about's just your style. You will probably loosen up over time but it's okay if it's not your thing.

I am not a good quick sketcher. I'm way too technical, which works out good for what I do- trompe l'oeil and realism... being more technical helps when you have to show clients something they can understand.

I think you are right, Chell, but I still dream about being able to do a loose/fresh sketch someday.

Jean, are you "sketching " with the paint brush or are you pencil sketching these first?

Jean Fu 陳琪 said...

Bobi, I did light pencil lines as a guide for brush works.

You have to go with whatever works. I can't sketch a lot cause its not what I want. LOL I can shape things with paint better than a pencil or pen sketch. thats just me :)
