|11/5/18 Zoka Coffee (after increasing the contrast)|
The only benefit of turning the clocks back is that the early mornings are a bit brighter again. Despite the overcast sky and promise of rain, a nice light was coming in through the windows at Zoka Coffee.
|The earlier version.|
What you see above is what I now consider to be the finished sketch. The version at right, however, is the one I took home from Zoka. I thought it was finished at the time, but after scanning it, I looked at the image on my screen and realized that I needed to increase the value contrast between the wall and the furniture. I used a cool gray to help differentiate the wall from the furniture, too.
Looking at a photo or scan of a fresh sketch is often a helpful way to see things like insufficient contrast. Something about putting it on a screen seems to give me a more objective view.
