Sketching and colouring coupled together is indeed a beautiful calligraphy, netting the imperative elements through a few strokes and creating light, mid-tone and dark hues can be really adventurous. Sketching a landscape or a tranquil surrounding through watercolours can prove to be a vivid interest towards life. The fields and marsh lands that are painted with bright and dark green hues can promisingly be a little wonder to look at. For beginners who would like to prove their mettle at sketching here comes an assortment of steps. To begin with, when the beauty of nature confronts, soak in that overwhelming experience for a while.
Slowly the mind begins to streamline the scenic view into forms, shapes and colours. Continue to interpret more imagination from the visual, start sketching the interpretation through simple strokes and fill them with colours and forms. For example, to paint a tree, the brain would work on the interior details like its tons of branches and leaves but that’s not enough, the spirit of the background has to be captured. In simple terms, the heart of the sketching originates from the scenic location of where the tree belongs to. Capturing such vital elements play an important role in sketching.
To work swiftly should be the motive, few minutes to half an hour’s time for a location sketch would just be optimum. Including too many details in the sketch wound dissolve the primary motive. Brighten up the sketch through colours and strokes as quickly as possible and then continue to structure the image. Try to portray the visual form that captured attention in the most realistic way possible. Do not allow imaginations to wander elsewhere amidst the sketching session. Stay true to the original visual form that captured interest and trail them through to the culmination. Step into this enchanting world of watercolours and see the world in a whole new dimension.
