David Hockney / fourth wall

Here are a couple small composition sketches I made the other evening when studying David Hockney’s landscape watercolors. When i’m looking for inspiration I tend to sketch paintings I love. It helps me gain understanding and break the fourth wall separating me (the viewer) from the artist/maker. If you haven’t checked out Hockney’s recent paintings I would highly recommend doing so! He is unbelievably talented and his later work is so different from what he was originally known for.
