Anyway, I've been a little worn out from wrestling with complicated and more formal paintings, so I decided to do another small sketch. Once again I used Ampersand Gessobord and once again, my idea was to try to paint quickly...under an hour if possible. I had planned to paint big shapes rapidly, and then come back to add the little details and calligraphy that can create a feeling of detail in a quick sketch, but the figures caused me to slow down quite a bit. I noodled on them much more than I should have, and as a result I ended up spending twice as long as my goal. Oh well....I did enjoy it a lot. As I painted I had Qaing Huang's beautiful little urban sketches with people in mind. Of course, I didn't even land on the same planet as that gifted painter, but I am not displeased. I like the perspective on this sketch....I think it has a feeling of depth, even though it is not a large landscape.
