|8/27/20 scenes from our upstairs deck|
|A simple sketch kit|
A while back, I made a lot of value studies using a double-sided vermilion/Prussian blue pencil. The two high-contrast colors helped me to codify the values in my mind. I still think it’s both fun and useful to study values this way.
I took a sketchbook, two colored pencils (one ultramarine, one orange) and a glass of iced tea out on our upstairs deck one sunny afternoon. Probably my simplest sketch kit yet!
Of course, I grabbed my hat, too, which is sporting flair lately from two new pins. Urban Sketchers may not be meeting, but I’ll always be an urban sketcher.
