Sketches In My Creative Process
Over the years, whether on a 14 hour flight or some quiet time at an art show, I have sketched constantly.
Viewing these sketches (measuring from 4" to 10") from all my note & sketch books and loving them, I concluded that if I tried to copy them onto a larger medium, I could not capture the nuances achieved at the time of sketching.
To capture the nuances in each sketch, I have them scanned and each one enlarged and then, after printing them to a larger format, I may add colour.
For those that I colour, I use various media including acrylic, inks, coloured pencils, water colour or gouache.
