Hammock - Thumbnail Sketch

 

During lunch today, I sketched out my next painting. I'll call it "Hammock." What you see below is actually about 1 1/2" wide.

And I can see that I have problems with how I see this already. The palm tree at left is not over to the left quite far enough. The coloring in some of it needs to be re-thought, especially the sand.

I'll try to sketch it slightly larger before hopping into the 16" x 20" painting.

(Scanning helps me during the painting process because it helps me to see the work more objectively and correct things early.)

Hammock - Sketch II

 

I worked on this for an hour after breakfast this morning, using my 1" filbert brush. The sketch is about 5" wide.

I changed out my colors and better positioned the elements in the painting. I'm ready now for the larger painting.
