Our landscape class painted again at Alcazar Garden in Balboa Park. Before leaving the house this morning, I looked at my sketch, ‘Among the Hedges‘, that I made on September 28 at Alcazar Garden. I thought it was much too dark and planned a brighter sketch for today. Even with this plan, I think today’s sketch is still too dark. I was able to get an idea of what a brighter sketch might look like by editing today’s sketch, which you can see below. Tomorrow I will push myself to go really bright and explore the possibilities.
Today’s sketch is mostly gouache with some pastel pencil lines.
