ONE-DOLLAR AUCTION, COLORFUL EUROPEAN WINDOW and FLOWERS by Tom Brown

 

Sketching for the purpose of creating paintings is VERY different than sketching for the purpose of framing the sketch itself.

This painting began with a few quick pencil sketches to organize my ideas for the composition, which is something I teach other artists how to do during my live workshops. Especially when painting outdoors (en plein air), because Nature provides us with an overwhelming abundance of detail.

Done correctly, a few moments with a pencil and paper can avoid disappointments and guarantee many more “keepers.” It can be the most valuable few minutes you ever spent.

In fact, at the urging of many artists who attend my workshops I have created a video that specifically addresses this approach. It’s called (appropriately) “PAINT BETTER BY SKETCHING FIRST.”

And in this video you can watch me explore several potential compositions for the same subject with quick pencil sketches the way I recommend doing them.

Following those demonstrations you’ll watch me develop one of the sketches into a finished painting. For comparison, I also show some pencil renderings that actually WERE done as “FINISHED ART” in their own right (which is very different from the pencil roughs for painting purposes).

And I even include a gallery of other paintings and my planning-sketches for them, to give you further inspiration.

You can order this video and start TODAY to take YOUR OWN ART to the next level.
