One out of several photos I have of Commercial Street portraying the early morning sun was selected for this picture.
The paper I used for this is Fabriano traditional white, cold pressed; it is my favourite. This time I tried to stick to just three pigments: cerulean blue, burnt orange and raw umber, an obscure version of the three basic colors: blue, red and yellow. Again, a nib pen and brown ink was used for the basic frame.
Drawing and painting inside is very different from sketching, in that one can proceed carefully step by step in some kind of planned method while using different materials and approaches. Sketching outside is different in that every sketch is more of an adventure; you jump into the deep end and swim.
I did two versions of the same photo, but now want to move on to something else. It is likely that I come back to this one before the end of the winter, using a different colour scheme and perhaps some other ideas.
