Check Out This Tip From Strokes of Genius 2: Chapter 5, Landscapes:
Develop A Composition From Separate Elements
I am drawn to the coastline on my research trips, and take hundreds of photos of any elements that catch my eye. In my studio, I mentally develop a new composition while sifting through these photos, putting separate elements together, as in Away From the Things of Man
. The boat stood in disrepair in a boatyard near Savannah; the coastline was from a beach in northeast Florida; the palms came from other shots. I begin by lightly sketching outlines with a no. 2 pencil, focusing on proportion and overall composition. I then fully develop the piece in colored pencil by working in vertical columns from right to left (being a southpaw). I apply differing drawing techniques based on the results desired. In Away
, the sand was drawn with successive layers of darkening grays, worked quickly, in random swirling but controlled figure-eight motions. The dark background in Wanderer
was achieved by covering the area with a black colored pencil stick and blending with a bit of odorless paint thinner and a paintbrush. I strive encompass a full range of values in my work. —Joseph Lotz
