Sketching Color Studies

This tutorial covers a process for quickly sketching studies that focus on colors and values rather than details.

Over the recording of 3 sketches sped up 2 times, I’m talking about the state of mind behind making these quick studies. I’m explaining how to take the most out of them so it translates into a visual library that can be used later to paint from imagination.

Understanding Color

Color studies are not about mindlessly copying a reference, but rather grasping the overall feel of the color scheme by making it your own through a process of trial and error far more beneficial to your learning.

An additional PSD (the burning clouds image) demonstrate the grain post-processing technique that helps to give a more organic feel to the final sketches.
