This portrait, birds eye view of the baby cot and drawers was a little too difficult for comfort as I was having to stand on top of the doll house and I don’t think I would be able to have done that for too long to maintain this perspective for the final piece.
Sitting on the floor gave me a more agreeable position. I really like the shadow under the cot and I still have a partial view out the window. With regarding to the portrait view I believe that there was too much floor visible and it distracts from the composition of the objects.
I decided to sit down on my other daughters bed opposite the cot. This posed the most comfortable position and I believe the most interesting composition. It gave me the shadow under the cot i wanted, the partial view out the window and both the drawers and cot continue of the screen.
At this point I decided to experiment with promarkers – but they bled through the sketchbook so I decided to try them on bleedproof marker paper.
A3 Bleedproof marker paper and Promarker greyscale.
I decided to try a monochrome, base and then inject the colour into the window however do to the simple layout of the composition I decided to add colour to take this whole image through to resolution.
