Don’t worry, I’m not having violent thoughts. I just thought it’d be cool to sketch. 🙂
This was a toned-ground exercise from my acrylics starter kit. It was a bit of a disaster—mainly because I ran out of white and mixed most of the colours way too dark, but also because I got discouraged, started experimenting, and made a bit of mess of it. Again, I learnt a lot, though, and I did enjoy creating the toned-ground effect.
I also did a reasonable quick sketch from the photo before I attempted the painting:
This was my attempt to capture the rainbow effect in my daughter’s glittery pencil case. I used her coloured pencils too. 🙂
From what I’ve read recently, drawing is foundational to good painting, so I’ve been focusing on that to begin with. Here are some of my better sketches from the last few weeks.
