Video - "On Location Drawing early in the AM

Drawing on location is a good exercise to develop the eye to see objects and relate the sizes and locations in a landscape.  The proportions are important for showing the depth and distance in a painting. Drawing is a fundamental skill to learn and develop to improve one's overall art.

This sketch was done early in the morning and my goal was to capture the shapes and values as I saw them.  The details of the background, etc were not distracting and it develops the basic shapes for a final panting.  Documenting the scene on photographs and then sketching the shapes makes it easier to translate into a painting.
