On Location - Museum and 75 Day Sketch Challenge - Day 13


On Location - Museum and 75 Day Sketch Challenge - Day 13

Lesson 3 of Jane LaFazio's class Sketching and Watercolor Journal Style - On Location was to sketch at a museum. I went to the Sheerar Museum, a small museum dedicated to the history of Stillwater, Oklahoma, which is where I live. I was the only visitor during the time I was there.

I used a water soluble Tombow black pen and touched it with water for shading. No pencil on this. I actually had some detail on the braided rope attached to the Speaking Trumpet, but when I touched it with water, it was too dark and I lost all the detail. I tried blotting with a tissue, and it turned the color you see. Lesson learned!

The Tombow worked well for this. I've found that if I wait for an area to dry, I can go back in and add more lines. It doesn't always help, but I can do it!
