Hello my friends and welcome to another
Tuesday of tutorial! I am in the French Riviera as I came to do some work. I bet nobody believed that I am working
but it´s true… creating. I am Leonardo Pereznieto and I am
very glad to see you! We´re going to sketch a sailing boat but
the purpose of this is showing you the option of using a middle toned paper,
in this case blue. Two weeks ago we drew on black paper using
exclusively white pencil. Today as we are using middle tone paper, we may draw with
white and other tones, I will use graphite. The list of materials is in the
information bellow the video. A lot of people have been asking me
how do I get inspiration. Of course there is no one recipe for inspiration
but personally I can tell you that I get inspiration by looking and experiencing
beautiful things, such as nature, cities, views, people, etc.
There are also artists who I follow because their art inspires me.
Living in an environment like this, I get more ideas than what I am
ever going to be able to actually produce… And talking about ideas, the moments
in which they arrive to me the most is when I am totally relaxed, like those
moments just before falling asleep or when I am waking up still laying in bed.
Therefore if one day you see me laying there almost snoring, who knows?
Maybe I am in a real productive moment for me! A secret for inspiration is that I keep
many many images, I save my own sketches and pictures I have taken
of things that I really like, even photos I find on the internet,
and when I need inspiration I pick into my idea´s file, maybe I like
the wings of a bird that I can use for one of my angels,
I may put that together with the pose of a figure I saw, maybe using a similar dramatic illumination to the one I saw in another photo
and placing all this on a landscape setting of my experience.
Blending all this and with a magic spark of imagination I can create my own work.
That is how I get inspired! I would love to know how you get inspired.
Please! write me a note in the comments and if you enjoyed this video,
which by the way, I didn´t even narrate because
I am talking to you so much, give it a LIKE and subscribe to my channel!
And I´ll see you on Tuesday.
