During the past week I participated in a facebook/instagram challenge put on by my art business coach Cory Huff at The Abundant Artist. Because of this challenge I created three short videos of myself discussing creating of my newest collage sketch for a piece I will call "Collared".
Here are all three videos, (each one is about 2 minutes long) along with pictures of the sketch at it's various stages.
As you can see, I made the collage sketch while at the beach for a long holiday weekend. Maybe this is why I appear so jovial.
Making of "Collared" collage sketch, take 1 from Leslie Peterson Sapp on Vimeo.
This the first stage of the sketch:
Next I made a big decision about color. In the first picture, the table tops in this bar are tan colored. This tan color is my go-to color choice for table tops. But making"by route" choices is the downfall for a fine artist! The purple-taupe cools the image down and creates a mood.
In the final video, I talk about some of the last adjustments I need to make to feel "right" about the finished sketch.
And here is the final! (Maybe! I am still wondering about that wine bottle.)
Now I will move onto the final piece, which will probably 16"x20".
(BTW, this collage sketch is also for sale! It is 4"x5" and is $150.00)
