I find it very hard to sketch with just a line, so most of my sketches are a bunch of lines and sometimes gray tones. Once I have the basics set then I can refine the sketch for painting. The freedom of being able to just let the sketch HAPPEN is very important to me.
This is another sketch of Aunt Tallulah. I love her style and the flowing capes and caftans she favors. It allows me to use a lot of color when I include her in a scene.
