New sketch – 03-06-2010

Art work in progress, contemporary fine art, drawing, painting

This is a 3 minute preliminary sketch for a new painting I’m developing, ‘The Race’.  It is also an experiment using pastels with water.

I drew the white lines in to see how they worked going over a dark area.  It didn’t work so well where the paper was fully saturated, but was better after a first pass removed some of the water, or where the paper wasn’t as wet.

The original black line work on the figures was done dry – just wanted to see how it held up by soaking it in water.
