I always liked to sketch with graphite and blue markers, I guess that’s why? I’d keep light as the white of the paper.
There’s also a lot of blue where I live. When I do landscape studies of the city, I’ll tend to use graphite and Payne’s gray for the buildings and washes for the sky. I like the negative space effect that it generates.
