Apples and beets

More domestic than urban, some quick pencil and watercolour sketches from the late night kitchen, trying to break my over-reliance on dilute Lexington grey for tone/shadow! Although the grey ink wash is very fast and effective for quick shadows, it can make a sketch duller. I’ve added Payne’s Grey to my palette, which mixes with Raw Umber to make rich dark shadows, and used Titanium White to add a bit of ‘body’ to my otherwise translucent colours on the grey paper.
