5th St. Market, Eugene, OR
Heidi posed the question, “When is enough enough?” and we all chimed in with our ideas and examples, and kept changing our minds.
Penelope started – here’s the sketch of her sandal from last week, now “enough” with shadows, contrast, and journal notes. Ta dah!
Jane began her ink sketch of a seed pod Heidi brought. Then she added color & announced she was “done.” Except that she needed to do a little values contrast & color work…oh, and some notes…
Sandy & Erik dove right in – Sandy with an ink sketch of the berried bough, Erik with an initial pencil outline of a scene from the UO campus he saw yesterday with his brother.
As Sandy’s ink sketch developed, she added an oak boll. Now she’s wondering if it needs color…watercolor? colored pencils? Stay tuned.
Erik’s pencil outline begins to take definition – ink next? color?
Barb Shirk sketched the oak boll, too – first an outline in brown ink, then more detail, and finally a shadow and commentary, below.
Heidi & Jo pondered their initial sketches – Heidi’s a soft colored pencil sketch of mint gone to seed, Jo’s the mystery seed pod.
But then they got side tracked asking Hugh for advice, gladly given.
Heidi tried adding some ink detail definition, then color background.
Hugh added color and contrast to his sketch of the table corner.
Barb A began her sketch with a bit of watercolor onto her light pencil sketch, then continued to drop color adding depth and life.
And when Heidi shared the autumn leaf she had done on vacation, we all agreed it was “enough.” And then some!
