Two of the things drawing has above photography is capturing the feel/movement with brush stroke, sharpened colour and editing a view as you draw (Turner did that big time – once moving a castle from one side of a valley to the other to enhance his composition). That is leaving out what you don’t want. Photographers often wait minutes to get a view (I think they call it a ‘shot’) without people. I just leave them out. Or if the sketch needs it – add them later.
But at a wedding they are the key!
Working at home from my sketches and the odd photo I became ‘tight’ and the results lost that ‘en plein air’ spontaneity. I’ve sent the first attempts which have been well received. Need to work at them a bit more.
PS. Did so and whilst uneasy with the first I freed up, used bolder colours and am happy with the final go…..
