I’m so behind in posting stuff lately. Life seems to get in the way. I might have to do several posts to catch up.
Firstly, a couple of portraits from Sktchyapp. I had a hankering to sketch some grey hair with coloured pencils. I did a flip through the photos in my saved queue and found a beautiful photo of Joan who has the most magnificent grey hair. Made me quite envious. This is a pretty rough and quick sketch of Joan, in ink and watercolour pencils on cheap old Kraft paper.
Another quickie of a cute little girl, photo supplied by Amber on Sktchyapp. Watercolour and pencil in a Quill cartridge paper journal.
At one of our weekly Plein air sketching outings we visited an old wool store shed, now disused and decaying. It’s always good to try and capture these landmarks before they disappear altogether.
I did a quick pen sketch on site for this one, as I wasted too much time chatting to other sketchers, and took a photo for colour reference to finish at home.
Sketched with a Lamy fountain pen with permanent ink in a Strathmore multi media journal. But as I was walking back to the car before leaving I couldn’t resist a quick sketch looking in the other direction. It was really meant to be all about the windmills in the distance but I got distracted along the way.
This was painted with my favourite scruffy brush on Fabriano Artistico paper.
More to come in the next post.
