getting back in the groove



After a long hiatus, I decided to get back to sketching and painting, so after trawling through the youtube vids for tips and things I may have missed last time around, I figured I would start with some basic still life studies of things lying around the house to understand light/ shadow and tonal values, which I didn’t do so great with before. These are the initial attempts using my set of 48 Staedtler Luna colour pencils on ordinary cartridge paper. Though I realised later this particular lot was too thin.
