100 - 1 (22)

Today’s sketch is based on yesterday’s, but I made some adjustments to add emphasis to the two figures and convey a stronger message that this sketch is about their relationship. The two figures now fill more of the page and the background figures are moved further back into the distance. Both faces are tilted up a bit so they appear to be exchanging a thought. The woman’s figure is now closer to the front of the page so that her raised foot might appear to be resting on the facing chair, suggesting a more intimate relationship (I still did not get it right). I added texture with watercolor pencil to both figures and made the shoreline move diagonally across the page to give more visual interest. I used markers, watercolor pencil, pencil and a pen.
