Olde World Ales
WISk met at Olde World Ales and Lagers in Langley on Wednesday. Unlike my usual "take time to decide" self, as soon as I sat down to work I made immediate decisions about my subject and how I wanted to handle the application of paint. "Just do it" was the operative phrase. With this first image, I toned the paper with a warm wash and splatters using a tooth brush. It was a dark wet day and I think the wash helps to convey that.
In the second image, Phyllis, a WISk member, was sunk into a big white chair that had some interesting shape and fold characteristics. I enjoy how line can move from light areas into dark and get lost, with hints and suggestions of objects. A fun sketch to make.
