Hi, Friends, how have you been?The project gets me very busy. I'll concentrate on the project at least for 1 or 2 months. So, I'll take a "break" for this blog.Your comments have encouraged me so much. Thank you for wonderful support and great understandings.
This week, I upload one sketch.
For a coffee break, I go to a pub or else where to sketch people.
This old man already tipsy looked very sad, which caught my heart. I always imagine a model's life. All alone, he silently sipped 4 or 5 beers in front of me. The man hardly turned the red face to me, but knew my sketching. It was his kindness to stay there for me. When I finished the skeching, I smiled at him. The man gently looked at me and silently left the pub. Certainly, we communicated each other with the watercolour painting. I was happy... I add the technical info on this work(A4).
1) First, wash, raw sienna.
2) Second, paint the guy
His face expression and the mood are my goal.
Crayons are used for the shirt.
Very limited pallet, as you know.
3) Check the whole balance in value and colour
Try not to overwork.
The raining and the humidity made interesting washes in the work.
In addition, my picture book illustration teacher and the mentor told me the same phrase, "Art, universal language!" Yes, indeed. Anyone can understand drawing, from a baby to a 100yrs old man. Further, the lecturer told us, "We can put any message. I believe children picture books can change the world! " Of course, the lecturer wanted to talk of love and peace for the world. I believe so, too.Actually through blogging, I could have met so many nice people from all over the world. Even though I do not upload a post, I'd like to visit your blogs.
Friends, thank you for warm cheers.
Certainly, I'll come back to this blog later!
I'd really appreciate your patience.
Till that day, happy painting!
