Couple of sketches in Ramsgate’s Belgian Café this evening

A problem which other artists don’t seem to have encountered to the degree I do is when sketching in bars and cafés there often isn’t enough light to see what you have drawn properly.

The first of this evening’s sketches looked ok to me in the dim lighting, but looks pretty awful under the bright light needed to photograph it.

The second one I did with an India ink fibre tip (Pitt pen size S) the contrast is such that you can see what you have drawn in very low lighting conditions.  

Not sure how one would get the colour right as it's difficult to tell with watercolour even in bright lighting.

Post a Comment

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
