Study Area

SDSU 831

I walked up to the college and stopped to sketch near Scripps Cottage, a green space that was full of students calmly studying, sleeping and socializing. I am working explicitly on light this week and think this sketch catches some of the brightness of the day. The sun was overhead and I used flat color washes for the lawn and trees since the bright sun washed out the details in the landscape. The story I wanted to convey was the feeling of peaceful purpose and so I selected a sketch of a student studying alone to post.  The student’s eyes are on his book, he has no companion or phone to distract him, and the tension in his back suggests an effort to concentrate.
