Sketching at The Stratford Archives

king-lear-costumes

The Urban Sketchers Waterloo Region received permission to let us have access to the Stratford Archives on Saturday. A good number of us spent a wonderful time sketching costumes. I sketched these two costumes from the King Lear play. After sketching with my brown ink pen, I added watercolour and then spritzed water on the drawing to allow the colour to do it’s thing. The ink ran a little more than I wanted but I kind of like the effect. It allows me to loosen up my art a bit.
