On the patio # 2

500 - 1 (1)

In Saturday’s post, “On the patio,” I had to crop out a portion after making a mess of it. Since I did many sketches that night when I was working on capturing expressions that convey a sense of people not engaging socially with a group, I was able to return to a similar sketch today and develop it further. I began this sketch using pen and ink. Today I continued to experiment on it by making more lines with pen, markers, and pencils. I used Yupo paper for the first time and am getting the hang of managing markers that stay moist and mixable.  In some parts of this sketch the line marks are visible, such as the figure’s hair, forehead, and shirt, and I hope to develop the skill to routinely include this type of line in more of my sketches.
