During the past few weeks of the UK lockdown, amongst delving into a new series of artworks I have spent a decent amount of time doing alla prima painting sessions and I’ve set up a few still life pieces to paint. It’s been nice to have the freedom of time to paint for the sake of painting and to learn, observe and explore different techniques and methods to my usual work.
Welcome to part III of my Sketchbook series!
This week I decided to step away from Norse/Viking themes for a moment and work on something else for the sketches and so I decided to do something that I’ve been meaning to do for a while; Master Studies.
I didn’t spend a great deal of time on these small sketches as they are just that; sketches. They are more a means of learning more about some of the great artists of history than creating rendered drawings.
Anyway, here they are –
Sketching these works of past masters has been a very enjoyable experience and it’s something I’ll definitely be continuing with in the future; there is so much information to be gleaned from studying the works of other artists and studying them.
