Pen & Ink

By in black and white, pen and ink, sketches, women

I got out my old Hunt #102 dip pen and drew a lot of little lines on this lady. Should have used a reference (she’s kind of scary). But at least I can cross-hatch!

Pencil Portraits

By in heads, pencil, Portraits, sketches

I’m actually not fond of drawing from photos, because to me it feels too limiting. However, it’s a good way to improve the practice, and see some new aspects of anatomy, rather than simply drawing things which have worked for me before. Here, I’ve been looking at heads as shapes in space, made up of […]

Notebook Computer

By in color, Coloured Pencils, digital, Portraits, sketches, watercolor, watercolour, women

My little notebook computer is great. But it’s a little silly to use, sometimes, as this guy demonstrates. He’s drawn in melty watercolour pencils and (I didn’t realise it at the time), melty black/purple roller pen. This is a Regency little girl, inspired by Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. Of course, the real little girl […]
