I bought some brightly coloured fabric recently to use in some spring still life pieces. This is the first of several pieces that I am working through in my art journal.
Black & White
I always try to do some small black and white sketches whenever I am working on something new like this still life. This helps me to work out the composition and it helps me again later when I am working in colour.
|Black and White Still Life|
After sketching and painting the still life in black and white, I then painted in gouache, watercolour and mixed media. It was a great exercise for my art journal.
This post was inspired by the following Mark Adam's quote.
