Sketchbook

Some recent drawings from my sketchbook for a project I'm working on which involves working to a reduced colour palette. As the number of these kind of projects increases, I am having to develop ways of building my drawings without losing the immediacy I love of just being able to put the colour down in one hit. I'm used to working on different layers of paper in terms of composition, but never for colour. When I've worked with a reduced palette in the past, the composition has had to be really simplified and the idea has had to be set in stone first - this isn't something I really enjoy or want to rely on. I'm definitely welcoming the chance to draw with different materials and get away from the felt tip pens... but not for long!
