A collection of fast drive-by sketches; trees seen from a train, and vehicles from a car. The trees were glimpsed for a few seconds as we shot past, so a brush-pen was ideal for quickly capturing their individual shapes and key lines, with extra shade added as the train sped on and the trees vanished. The cars were a bit easier as the traffic was slow… And coloured paper seems to help, less daunting than a white page, and less temptation to overwork a quick sketch with colour!
Lexington grey ink in fountain pen and water-brush, white gouache, A6 – a couple of minutes per tree/car
Good idea about the colored paper. Nice sketches.
Thanks, it took me a while to find colours that were neutral enough but still interesting! Ed
