Lily comp sketches
Most of all I use my sketchbooks for layouts of the paintings that I am thinking about.
If they are from photos – I keep track of where to find them again (caption numbers). I have thousands of reference pics on storage CD’s. Using the format of the canvas that I intend to use, I work on composition and value. Sometimes they are just rough doodles…others more refined and complete as the one on the right. I am always looking for the strong graphic elelments and balance for the color and negative spaces.
