Day 92 (Sun April 2) cable car/train

Trying a sketch of my own of a photo my husband suggested I try. Practicing perspective, and what things to leave out. Also, I think I want the darks darker and the lights lighter next time. I was afraid of making it muddy, instead I made it bland. I’m learning!

I will have to eat my words regarding waiting to get sable paintbrushes, because my husband surprised me with a sable detail brush this week!

It’s really nice and now I want more More MORE. I definitely need a #6 or 8. And a #12. And a 1/2 inch flat. And a travel brush. And… some others. Poor Mark. He was being so sweet. 🙂

Seriously, though, it really does just feel NICE. But I still think you can find good quality cheap brushes to start with. 🙂

    1. Thank you! I was afraid of making it all dreary and muddy because of a previous sketch I’d done, so then didn’t take my darks far enough, I think. Maybe the tram could just use brighter colors? I could have played around a bit with changing the shadows, so it isn’t totally in shade, possibly. Leaving the front bit in whites… I forget it doesn’t have to be ACCURATE to be ART. 🙂
