Here’s another quick sketch while taking a break in between jobs; spent around 25 minutes doing this one. I watercolored first, then used the Sharpie and then did a couple shadows with a greyish lavender Copic marker.
When trying out different media sometimes I forget the ones I started with. In architecture school a Sharpie and tracing paper are (or at least were…) the most used items. A couple of days ago I purchased a double-tip Sharpie, my favorite.
Today I took a small break to do this sketch at Plaza de Armas in Old San Juan. This time I decided to draw the side opposite to the City Hall, a first time for me. Actually this is probably my favorite sketch I’ve done at Plaza de Armas.
It took me 25 minutes, 5 more than I had planned, but who’s complaining? I did enjoy this impromptu session.
Two posts in just a few hours? I don’t remember having done this before, but as I am now posting from my phone it gets a lot easier. Also, the last few days I’ve been sketching a lot, so I don’t want to get behind.
I did these while waiting for my class to start. One was while having a sandwich at La Tortuga, the other is my third version of El Callejón del Hospital. What I like about this one is that all the color was put in before the black. It is really my interpretation of how I was seeing the place and not a sketch I colored.
