I have blocked in all the main colours for my latest drawing “Strangers on the shore”, except for the main subject, two very different shells. I will leave them until last.
My next task is to add the detail required to the rocks and improve the depth of colour overall.
Working with an almost grey palette has been quite fulfilling. I intend to make the shells rich in colour.
The composition has been deliberately designed to lead the eye from the left hand side towards the shells (one in particular).
