North Portland Studios

9 Apr

Fresh or fake

This is a quick color sketch done last fall in the North Portland Studios located in St Johns district just in the shadow of the bridge of the same name.  The dahlias were fresh and displayed incredible color.  How could you not respond to that?  I generally get together with friends once a week to do some still life sketching.  If I don’t see what I need in front of me, I may improvise to improve the composition.  I like to create depth through overlap at the very least.  I consider percentage of warm and cool or at least a variety of color to keep the eye moving around the set up.  It’s just plain good practice wouldn’t you say?
