I enjoyed the sketchbook walk but due to it being cold I only did the first sketch outside. For the other two I took photos and sketched quickly indoors. This also allowed me to chose a variety of media I wouldn’t necessarily carry on a walk.
I have noticed that I tend to focus on a central dark point. Is this a weakness? I will explore different viewpoints in future sketches but maybe I need to look at where other artists place very dark points in the landscape.
- look at other artists’ approach to tone in landscape
- sketch the field barn from different viewpoints.
