Backlit Figure

Because of the light here in Porquerolles, I found myself continuing to work on conveying brights. This sketch began as a simple line and wash drawing that I changed many times using Procreate. I worked through many versions of this drawing, varying the amount of dark by cropping parts out or just painting in portions darker. I was surprised that the feeling of bright light weakens if the darks are too dark. I also decided that the blurry portions on the sides of the sketch are necessary to show how the bright light makes it hard to see detail.

This is a pencil, watercolor and Procreate sketch.
