Another quick post… this time just to share a sketch in isolation. This quick sketch of The Fox Hunters Return in Campbell Town on the Heritage Highway in Tasmania was done during my visit in May 2014.
As most of you know, these days I prefer mixing up the order in which I apply ink and wash (not just ink then wash) as it results in more lively painting. But I often find that now when I draw in ink first, I am more likely to just ‘colour in’ and my work is a lot more tame.
This particular sketch was drawn first and then painted but there is a liveliness about the watercolour that I am very happy with. So how did I achieve that? Any ideas?
You can see this sketch in the context of the full spread here...and a pretty productive day sketching, I must say!
