Some of my color sketches for window designs!
A classroom window and a museum window. Since so many of the students had drawn cats, dogs, and other animals in their sketches of what they'd like in their homes and neighborhoods, I thought it would be fun to try to incorporate a cat and a dog in each window scene, in some cases other animals like birds, in different creative ways...for example, looking at each other in a museum gallery in the form of statues, busts, and a famous clock at the Hermitage Museum. The classroom scene also includes Dasha's drawing of a dancer.
I find photoshop very helpful in working out color schemes...at our 4th workshop, I had students color in sketches for remaining windows I hadn't colored yet. They apparently told Nastya that they wish they could have such bright colors in their own homes, as they started experimenting with bold interior color schemes.
