Sketchbook scenes – 2015

Back in 2015 I was looking for inspiration to fill a sketchbook that I had and so I gave myself a task.  Do a search for iconic movie scenes and then pencil and watercolour sketch them in the sketchpad in the order they appeared in Google images.  I resisted telling anyone what the thread was through these sketches, though I hinted that there was one.

Looking back on them I’m actually quite proud of how they came out, those scenes are very clearly from each of those films and if you know the scene you’ll hopefully recognise it.

I believe that there are still some pencil sketches in that sketchpad that I hadn’t painted yet so I might dig it up and see if they are worth finishing.  I might even be tempted to continue on the work (I do need to finish up my He-Man collection though and a number of commission pieces!) as the search results have changed so dramatically in the past two years.

Not sure if I have a favourite, possibly Leon and I think I captured the colour palette of Terminator 2 really well.

What’s your favourite? I’d love to hear!

    I’m somewhat surprised at my choice, but it’s “Singing in the Rain”; it’s such an energetic, motion-filled scene (including the rain) and you captured it all. Love it!

      You’re the second one who has said that to me now, I’m not a massive Singing in the Rain fan (I have seen it, when I was VERY young but I’ve never revisited it) so that’s kind of nice to know that I “got it” LOL.
