Tried a loose and fast doodlewash of a neighborhood in Paris, France called Montparnasse to see what would happen. This happened. I wasn’t particularly pleased with my sketch but after I splashed some color on it, it started to become a little more interesting. It’s certainly not quite like my other doodlewashes, so it was fun to try something different.
I’m not entirely sure whether I’ve captured the kinetic energy of the scene or if it just looks like a frenzied mess. Either way, it was another fun exercise at least. I’m trying to play with a looser style than my more detailed sketches, but not sure that I’ve quite arrived at it yet. Would love to know your thoughts on this one and any and all suggestions if you have them for future sketches! Please leave me a comment below!
