the color sketching has begun. This will be the Road Trip Color scheme.
I wrote the story, created a story board, took notes, made revisions and it’s sketching time. I want to get used to painting without drawing with a pencil first.
The color scheme makes sense because with any journey you have happy times. You have times, lots of them, when your faith in you, your abilities and humanity will be tested. The aqua is a reminder for not becoming negative circumstances.
I know that my attitude was negative during the trip…I think a lot about the trip. The one year anniversary is approaching and this book is a good way to celebrate.
And just like that, I found the personal theme for this book.
- Paint all objects with watercolor. (working on watercolor skills)
- Use markers and pencils to add details. ( gain confidence in drawing)
- paint pages of textures( let color and texture tell the story)
I’m going to paint several sketches and choose the best ones for the book.
