Sketch of A View from SDSU by Sarah SUllivan

A View from SDSU

This was my first sketch from yesterday. I abandoned it before adding paint because I did not like the way the second tree to the left aligned with the corner of the building. I also thought the placement of the man was too far to the right. Today, since I did not go out sketching, I decided to go ahead and paint it. I was able to move the corner of the building a bit towards the right and that helped. I could do nothing about the man’s placement but used a blue color for his shirt similar to the sky’s and that seemed to integrate him into the sketch.

This is a pastel and gouache sketch in a 9 X 9 inch Derwent sketchbook.
