I have an odd assortment of containers to hold my brushes.
Another sleepless night led to this late night sketchbook study. As I focus more on making value choices I am seeing values more distinctly in my daily travels. When I have brush in hand, I am attempting to alter the reality in favor of creating better value patterns. Working with only one or two pigments clarifies the values. Working in color can be easily deceptive.
I begin with a contour drawing in pencil and apply watercolor washes.
