procrastinated for far too long when I got home from work, watching old anime episodes with the lady. Still once she fell a sleep I rose and sketched for a bit, did a few warm up 30 second sketches, before jumping into an hour long one, try and guess which one. Pondered about colour while I was drawing and when I should start trying to include it. Colour’s never really been my strong point, sure I know the basics of colour theory and the various sets of complimentary choices, but that doesn’t mean I’m very good at using them. It is however one of the areas I want to improve the most, artists who excel at using light and colour in their works make me incredible envious, which sound more sinister than it should. but you can see in today’s sketch I spent a great deal of time on the light, even finding bounced light within shadows, and whole new patterns of shadows within shaded areas, any other day It would have just been “shadow” really was worth getting out of bed to do this session today.
one more thing, I lied when I said I’d leave the kitchen alone, chalk it up to a slow day at work I really want to change the white cupboards, they make the whole kitchen look cheap, but then I’d have to change a whole raft of other things and like I said yesterday too much time spent already.
