We’re into October already. Or maybe it’s InkTober to you? You’ve seen a few of last week’s little sketches already in my Inktober post. Here are some more from the week that was.
It must be fall, because the pears are gone and there’s pumpkins and gourds in my studio instead. I particularly like the little white one, it’s fun to paint white stuff in watercolors. I want to do a whole series of “how to paint a white pumpkin in many different ways”. Maybe next week, that pumpkin will last forever.
Like many things I draw, I often draw stuff over and over, just with a slightly different approach each time (mostly just to keep me from getting bored). Here is my “thinking in triads” version.
The 3 colors I’m using are Permanent Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue and Hansa Yellow Medium. @janeblundellart suggested I try quin rose for my red for brighter purples and I might try that. Thanks Jane!
In the pastels department, still playing with them. This is my daughter’s violin.
And from figure drawing, 2 studies of the model in her long pose. Each of these was done in one 20-minute session.
Until next week, happy everyday sketches, and if you’re Inktobering, have fun!
