Finished


It is hard sometimes to know when to stop. My goal with these drawings is to observe the details but keep the drawings loose and sketchy. My main concerns from yesterdays post were the standing figures shoes and the floor of the bar along with the bag by the stool and the chalk writing on the board. Those things were necessary to the sketch in my opinion. Did I go to far or not far enough, you tell me.

It could use a tree or a stream in there...

I think you went just far enough Steve. Those elements you mentioned add interest, and don't take away from the main subjects.

Stephan,

I've added you to my favorites, and have fixed my link if you'd like to visit. I am in Vancouver, but travel often, so I was wondering about the duration of your classes.

Best...I love your drawing style :)

It's "poifect!" The balance of the colors and tones allow the viewers eyes to easily flow from left to right.

Oh, my gawd!! Did you go too far, you ask? What were you thinking, for heaven's sake! Don't you know when to stop by now?

I would just love to leave that comment(lol)

Your sketch is just right, Steve. Makes me want to go have a drink!

Thanks everyone, I'm hard at work on these bar drawings at the moment so it's great to get the feed back.

The added details finished the piece especially the chair and the others were the sprinkle on top.
Great vibrant piece with a lot of energy. Your work is very much appreciated.
