Sunset

This is one of the few drawings I have finished lately. I wanted to experiment with making a more abstract version of something that would still be recognizable.

I made this using a variety of different markers, mostly promarkers and copic sketch. It´s on bristol board, wich I bought a while back because it was smooth and heavyweight. It was also recommended by a lot of people. Can´t say I`m a fan though, unfortunately. The copics looked speckled on it, and the ink kept bleeding over the edges. That´s something i have a hard time with. So I don´t think I will buy any more of it.

This time I did a sketch on a separate paper before transferring it over to the bristol board. I prefer working that way, since my sketches tend to be messy.

Picking out the colours was something I found to be difficult. It was easier for the sky, but I´m less than pleased with the ground.

I feel like I learned a lot while working with this. Both about my markers, about colour and about abstraction. There will likely be at least a few more drawings made in this style.  Do you have any ides for subjects?
