When a field sketch is under drawn (as shown above), it is problematic to bring it into the studio. Note that in this drawing, the features are too undefined, the shapes have not emerged solidly. The heavy lifting - development and discovery - is still there to be studied and worked out in the field sketch. In the studio, I want to simply dust in the transitional mid tones and deepen the shadows a bit. That's it.

Adventure Journal Workshop
Hi, Chris here. You know, many big projects can be traced back to a scribble or doodle in a notebook, journal, or sketchbook. Artist's Kayak is a conversation about 'up river' research that feeds 'down river' applications such as my Green River Picture Books series.
If you are looking for conversation and community about creative journaling, you will enjoy being part of the Artist's Kayak Adventure Journal Workshop. To learn more, reach out to me by email... tap here.
