EDM 93 Egg Carton
I sketched and watercolored this in my Raffine all media sketchbook. I missed working on this paper since I've been practicing loose washes on clayboard and hotpress at the Art Festival last weekend.
I wanted to achieve a looser look and my attempt was to try this in a sketchbook with a minimum of water. The sketch on the left is on the original sketchbook paper; he one on the right was a copy I did of the original sketch with ink added. I like both -- and wanted to see how the looser look appeared with a touch of ink ... I'm pretty happy with the looseness, as the washes seemed to work pretty well and the paper held up even better than I imagined.
It's funny .. I love the looser look .. but my hand tingles to add details ..!! And to fix shapes, shadows where the washes didn't go exactly where I wanted, etc. ... so this experiment has taught me something too ... another of my life's lessons -- letting it go! LOL
