Taken several of my sketches from Auckland and produced a paint over. There was only one new idea here – using the eraser in areas to help tonal value
New Lynn mall. I need a new nip for my pen. It’s grinded down and is scrapping on the tablet. It may be part of the problem of unable to get straight lines – my hand has been very jerky. Frustrating.
Working on this I wished I had taken a photo of the scene – the line was fine – but I had no information for the tone – so just made it up. I guess it works, but it doesn’t feel right.
I used the eraser tool for the blue – capturing a more transparent background. It’s been awhile since I’ve explored these ideas.
