Some really quick tonal sketches I did in preparation for a painting I’m going to do. (I previously did a pencil drawing.) They’re pretty rough, but I found the exercise helpful—and fun. I did them to try to decide on an underpainting colour, but they were also good sketching-with-a-brush and value practice.
I like the ochre one best. Amazing how different colours can produce such different moods. The blue one I stuffed up and didn’t finish. 🙂
