A sketchbook page

Kindly click on the image for a bigger view

A page from my sketchbook. The left sketch was done couple of months back. I was trying to explore usage of complimentary colors by exaggeration. Rather than trying a desaturated background I tried to experimented with a saturated complimentary color green to the red tomato which also happens to have the same hue underside of it giving a chance to blend with lost edges.  

The right one is from yesterday morning trying to capture big shapes of colors and values. Noticed this vehicle parked just near our home. The shape and it's structure always fascinates me, specially when under a strong sunlight. It's a great exercise just to concentrate on the bigger shapes and simplify everything else.
