Basic Sketch a vase for painting
Today, I'd like to share the process of basic sketch for painting. Most of all, you have to keep in mind to use a light pencil like a 2 H. It will be outline, and doesn't appear over the paint.
First, you have to make a vertical line and then divide it three portion such as top, neck and bottom part of a vase like below.
Next, draw an oval shape for the top of the vase. Keep in mind that the flower must fit inside this one.
Then draw one horizontal line between the neck of the vase and the bottom. Based on this line, the curve of the vase is drawn. The curve differs depending on the shape of the vase, but in my case it narrows from top to bottom.
Below is a still life with a vase painted by one of my students, Olivia.
