Vintage Indian Chief, $32,000!

Oh, ignorance is blessing! I did not know that I sketched the model at $32,000!
Sydney sketch club went to the Indian Motorcycle shop. I just liked this old fashioned style and very interesting colours, all opaque. Then, I started sketching. Water use was not allowed in the shop. After sketching it, I went outside and picked up a similar one for a value study and put colours in patchy rain. The work impressed both manager and other members. One man said, "I thought you'd sketch only people!" Na! I sketch everything that interests me! I'm not a big fan of cars, but drawing motorbikes is a fun. 

Now, I'm nearly finishing "colour roughs," of "My Dog Socks." That's why I could not post these weeks. Thank you for your visiting and sorry, my absent. Yes, very busy. What are "colour roughs" in a children picture book? A good question! "Colour roughs" are coloured work smaller than a real size illustration before getting on the real size work in a picture book creation process. Maybe, a next week or so, I'd write about it. So, pardon me, I must go. 
Friends, Happy Painting and Illustration!

    1. Thank you, sweet Judy! I'll write about the colour roughs though, I'm busy!! I hope this will make sense to you. The "colour rough" is much like an experimental stage of colouring. Cheers, Sadami
