Today when I was painting up my sketches I decided not to finish this guy as I usually do. I left out the changes in value because...I don't know, the simplicity of the local colour just really spoke to me. I just find it calmer and I really think it works. This is something I think I will explore more in the coming days. Below this lady's colours are looking pretty darn muddy and I think that its a wake up call to clean my palette. I always hate doing it cause I feel like I'm wasting so much paint. But if it comes at the expense of a nice painting then I guess its worth it!! As a side note this weekend I went down to St. Lawrence market to do some shopping. While I was there I saw a group of people sketching!! I went over to them to chat and turns out they were in fact animators as well. They even invited me to sketch with them! I didn't have my sketch book with me though so I had to decline. Last time I leave home without it! Either way I love meeting local artists. It always puts a spring in my step!
