Sketch of a woman resting by Sarah Sullivan


I took an overworked sketch from yesterday’s session with the North Park drawing group and used it as a reference for this sketch. Although my tendency is to completely fill a page with color, I now want to learn to use the white of the paper as a compositional element. So I let the white space of the paper define some of the woman’s features and used it as well to show how the light reflects on her face, arm and hair. 

This is a marker and watercolor sketch.
