Session #077, Work #067


For some reason I really couldn’t get motivated today. I went to Carkeek park after deciding not to go for a long hike in the mountains somewhere.



But, even at the park I didn’t feel like painting, mainly because there were so many people. I ended up driving to Saint Edwards Park on the east side of lake Washington. I walked around there for a bit and did a small hike down to the lake.


The building there was interesting, but no matter what I saw I just wasn’t in the mood for a painting.


So I ended up driving home and re-visiting the sand castle that I painted a long while back. Here, here and here. I was even out of sorts with the drawing, just no focus and I only spent an hour on it. Not really happy with my performance today.

The Drawing



The Setup



My hierarchy of painting importance

  1. Drawing
  2. Value
  3. Edges
  4. Composition
  5. Color




How can I improve the drawing

I’m only comparing the drawing today, I didn’t get into much values at all. Its fairly accurate, but could be much better.
