The Gathering Sketch

blue pink abstract organic shapes composition

I'm still adding to my growing collection of colour sketches on paper. I started to see organic shapes in this sketch from the very beginning which informed the way it turned out!

A fair bit of colour play without any particular direction in mind beyond starting with blue, pinks and a green.

This one spent some time in portrait orientation but settled into landscape eventually. The end result put me in mind of leaves gathering at the water's edge.

Already the colour palette that emerged in this sketch is weaving its way into one of my bigger paintings which is currently a work in progress, so we'll see where that goes!
