How my art works begin...thumb nails and sketch process
irajane

By irajane


People often ask me how I go about starting a work, the first bit is day dreaming about the subject matter, letting my ideas bubble away until a clear image come to mind. Then I quickly draw little thumb nails of what is in my head...The day I drew these I was teaching perspective drawing to students, which definitely influenced the high point of view, creating a dynamic composition I think.
Then I decide on the one I really like and redraw it in more details, also considering the colors I'm going to use.. Next, I research the surface details and what style I will use. Will the clock be Swiss, or English? I really like William Morris wallpaper designs, so will look up some of those. The painting time is usually 40 hours, give or take as I work as well, and fit the painting around that and kids.
