Valentine Sketch

Something very heavily Forster-inspired, I'm not ashamed to admit. I plan to finish this with watercolor, though I'm unsure whether I should do the linework with pen first or not.

  1. Forster seems like a pretty chivalrous man to me.
    From what I can tell this is themed rather Victorian-y. But from this sketch, I really can't tell what's happening in the background. At this point, I'm not sure where they're at and exactly what's going on.
    Because it's not as clear, I'm going to guess that this gentleman is taking the dame out on a proper date.
    What I want to see is some more context. Where are they going? What did he set up for her?
    Maybe they're in a lovely garden about to have a relaxing picnic lunch.
    Something along those lines will definitely help sell this idea of "non-traditional" love compared to nowadays.
    Keep working with this, the lines that you have established in the background really help move your eye around.
    Take care and hope that you have a great weekend!
