Sweet Tooth

Sweet Dreams (black fine liner, watercolor)
The idea was to make a grid to your sketchbook and then fill it with variations of the same topic. My topic was desserts. Bad choice. Especially when I started to color these nightmares I think I started to drool. In Felix Scheinberger's book Urban Watercolor Sketching Scheinberger writes that adding color makes drawings look alive. He says that drawing tries to explain things and painting creates illusions. I agree, color really made all the sweets look more delicious.

I told my students that they have to fill two pages with this exercise. They were allowed to change topic for the other page and so was I. So there's more to come.
