Regularly sketching is great for capturing thoughts and exploring ideas. It’s a process I always cherish and making sketches and creating work in my sketchbook is an important part of my creative expression.
Below are some of my sketches from 12 July 2016
A sketchbook is great for experimenting with new concepts and ideas and I see it as a powerful problem-solving tool that I can return to later and use for developing my next art project.
Sketching gives me the freedom to illustrate my thoughts and what’s in my mind. It’s a safe space to experiment and generate ideas; somewhere I can test and play with shapes and colors before committing to my next project/artwork.
Today I am making sketches using a pale blue colour in combination with either yellowor pink.
An example of where I have have used these three colours in the same painting can be seen in my painting Squares in Blue and Pink
I am also trying out using watercolour paper today, instead of acrylic paper.
* Mixing colours
* Combining different blues, yellows and pinks
* Using white for highlights
* Painting with acrylics
* Two-coloured sketches
* Painting on watercolour paper
* Exploration of geometric shapes & forms
