Some Sketches and a Video

Watercolor sketch of a painting to be

Contour drawing (without lifting the pencil from paper) - Anthony Martin getting wicket of Suresh Raina in recently concluded one-day series in West Indies.

Another Contour drawing - My sister having a really nice nap.

I have not painted much since last week. So nothing really worthwhile to post. In such situations generally my sketchbook comes to my rescue. So here are some sketches from my sketchbook.

And yes a video. I made a small video as a trailer for my upcoming show. Have a look. Share it with your friends if you like it.

I love the light in your watercolor sketch. The feeling the colors bring to it is wonderful!

Frank said...

I love your watercolour sketch. Maybe I should do some pre-painting sketches - something I've only thought about so far?

Prabal, I love the blue shadow on the top painting on the building: so much volume so much information. I can see right away the beautiful sunny day there.

Thanks,
Irina

Lydie, Judy,
Thank you guys. Always.

That is great. Thanks a lot

Susan,
Thank you for your kind comment.

Frank,
I think these sketches just prepare you for the painting better. Sometimes I do about 5-6 sketches too. But I make sure that the medium is different everytime, so that its not repetitive.

I find sketches so facinating - almost more so than finished paintings. I really enjoyed this post and I really hope you blog some more of your skecthes soon :0)
