Morning sketch. ‘Breakfast bar’
Do you sometimes lack the inspiration for something good to sketch?
I do. This morning I decided to tackle my breakfast bar. So many unrelated items but I decided to try.
PS Sorry the pics are so far apart, I am working on that. If anyone has the answer please post a comment for me. Thank you in advance. I am just a painter!!! Lol.
Well, it does look pretty boring, doesn’t it. But with a bit of shuffling around with the items, I think I improved the composition.
I didn’t move the items, I just drew them in where I wanted them, but you could move them around. I drew straight in with an ink pen. Just trying to challenge myself to do a quick drawing without thinking too much.
Notice the cereal box on the right hand side, that leads your eye into the picture, next a taller item then graduating down to the toaster.
Now for some colour, well you know me. I just have to do it. I also played with the idea of putting stronger colour in the shadows, dragging the colour from each item out and adding some greyish tones as well.
And no, I didn’t have olive oil and sauce on my oats this morning.
Have fun and do a sketch a day. ❤️
Oh and by the way, I have only a couple of spots left in my Painting in Paradise Art Retreat in Ubud. Nearly booked out but my lovely cousin Jill has found a few extra Villas (how did she do that?) so we can accomodate a few extra painters.
