Peruvian Weavers

I’ve been wanting to do a painting of this ever since I went to Peru, so I thought I’d start with a sketch in the sketchbook to learn where the issues are, what I like about the scene, etc. The painting does not do the original photo any justice at all, but I learned a lot and I’m thinking of doing something much more abstract with this next.  I’ll share if I do!

  1. I like the smoothness you used for the watercolor jackets. I think the figures are realistic and you capture a feeling that is energetic and pleasant. I like the background grass and flowers, its not overworked and your hand is loose throughout.
