Sketching Challenge: Add dramatic shadows to sketch.
Process: I am always in awe when I see sketches with bold shadowing. As I am learning to sketch I am finding this quite a challenge to achieve. For this one, I started with the sketch of the peppers and then added the shadow with Paynes Gray instead of black. I then added the reds, greens, blues and highlights of yellow to complete the peppers. I am not sure if doing the shadows first is the best way but I found it easier (for this sketch) to add them before coloring in the peppers.
I got a bit overzealous with the background color and that said, I wish I had kept the background white. Good thing my sketchbook is all about practice and play!!
