Did this preliminairy sketch on paper with acrylics.
The size is approximatly 25cm x25 cm(10 inchx10 inch)
The sketch has it’s rough edges but I like the concept.
I’m considering to make a full size painting of this on a masonite panel.

A basic studio sketch based on a 2 minutes field sketch.
The original sketch “resting” was made on the Medieval Ommen Festival.
The original sketch can be found there too..
A young female enactor that rested for a while.
First drew it with a pencil, then added ink and did some basic shadowwork.
Didn’t do the textures of the straw bales.
I’m quite happy with this basic design, think I will be expanding on this sketchinktrustendhooi

Sketches made on medieval festival

Sunday, August 23rd, 2009

All these sketches were made yesterday on “Middeleeuws Ommen”,
Ommen being a place in The Netherlands.
A Dutch Blog with details about this festival can be read here

 

Most sketches were made in about 2 minutes, only one sketch was posed(female dancer).
The rest is free sketched without the subject posing.

Of course several sketches couldn’t be finished because people moved.

Enjoyed the festival very much, especially the Viking section was very well done. Also the medieval actors which mixed in between the public made the atmosphere complete.
