#33: Adjusting a Sketch
1. Cut - Cut off what you don't like.
2. Copy - Make adjustments to the elements (size, shape, etc.).
3. Arrange - Rearrange elements until you find a pleasing composition.
#34: Reworking a Sketch
1. Trace - Trace the new composition with tracing paper to create a new sketch (this happens after step 3 above).
2. Transfer - Transfer the newly sketched composition onto quality paper using transfer paper (available at art supply retailers).
#35: Rules and Art
1. Beyond the Sketchbook- Begin your final work of art. Rule: Working on finished art replaces sketching.
2. Changing the rules in the middle of the "game." - BE OPEN to change as you go. This work in progress has changed from the reworked sketch. A box was added and more changes are sure to come!
In my journey to keep a weekly sketchbook, I have found it more rewarding to focus on finished art between the sketches. The learning and practice continue through the creation of art. I'm including the unfinished "final" art as part of the process. Sketchbook #33 is a revision of Sketchbook #32 in the previous post.
Musical inspiration: A variety of musical genres have inspired me over the past 3 weeks.
Media: Sketches #33 and #34 graphite on tracing paper. Sketchbook #35 is "final" art in progress: Colored Pencil on Arches Cold Press Watercolor Paper.
