Studies for a Painting

You may remember the sketch 'Home Sweet Home' I made from the top of our drove. I came across it the other night while looking through old sketchbooks for inspiration and decided to re-sketch it a few times in my Copic pens. The following day I decided to paint it from the information I had from both my sketchbook and my memory.

I'll upload he painting from my camera soon.

As you can see, the copics create a wonderful tonal study to work from and they are just so easy to use. The fun part is trying to remember colours or make my own up to create the mood/atmosphere I am after.

Great value sketches. Can't wait to see what you do as the final painting.

Great sketches. I need to do this too, to start with sketches before painting... Very inspiring!

Like the final copic tonal study best - has such atmosphere. You are attacking your new desire to paint with professional authority. Such preparation can only bring about very competent and spontaneous paintings. You put me to shame.

I love the different tonal studies. Each one has such a different feeling and could make a wonderful painting.
