Daily Art -- Sunset Bay

Sunset Bay
4 1/2" x 7 1/2"
Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils
Red Canson Mi-Tientes pastel paper, smooth side

From memory and imagination. I think I sketched several scenes similar to this from photo references a UK friend posted on WetCanvas, anyway I started putting it together just looking at the blank paper, sketched in graphite and began working it over. I reread the lesson in the Kreativ Akademie CD that came with my 120 color Polychromos set looking for a good example of this style when someone asked about drawing with only 45 degree angles. Several other WC members posted examples but the best ones I recalled were from the Polychromos CD.

I'd meant to do something in that style someday anyway so I went back, reread the lesson and did this on the brightest paper I could find -- one lesson was to use the paper color and use a bright tinted paper.

I am still sick. Almost as nasty as it was yesterday. Almost. I didn't sleep much, only about six hours. Maybe all that sleeping yesterday got me caught up on sleep for a while.

It's cold and rainy outside. Gray sky, reflective streets, gold and green leaves, ugh soggy and grayed out. I miss the sun and miss the summer already. Come winter that Pizza Pro restaurant will be a prominent thing in my backyard view, no longer hidden by foliage.
