My friend can make scrumptious meals in an instant. We stopped by for an impromptu lunch, red in the face, after exercising on this hot day. I wanted to convey both the sense of comfortable friendship and my friend’s command of the kitchen. I think I caught both by exaggerating the body language of the two figures talking and by the spread of salad ingredients under the gaze of my friend.
I am working on light this week. After several overworked sketches from yesterday, I looked through other blogs and noticed that many artists leave much more white space than I do. I tried it and I like the effect of less color and think it helps send a message about lighting. However, when I look at this sketch, although it says summer to me, it does not convey the heat of this very hot day.
