|Schönbrunn Park (after Klimt)|
Caran d'ache Neocolour in Derwent Black Book
copyright Katherine Tyrrell
It's an "after Klimt" drawing of Schönbrunn Park - specifically of the tall trees and one of the pools and the reflections. He likes trees a lot but also seems to rather like water in his paintings.
I'm trying to get my head round both how he composes his images and the marks that he makes. I think this one is rather better at the former and not too good at the latter! I was missing some mid green colours which are needed to make this a more effective colour match.
The necolour crayons certainly work very well with the Black Book and I think they might become the preferred media for this sketchbook of smooth black paper. Now to see if they sink in (the perennial problem with black paper) or remain on the surface! What I have discovered is that there's absolutely no point in wetting them on this paper as they go to nothing.
