EmmaPosted: July 7, 2017
Today’s face: Emma, inspired by Sktchy. Drawn in a Daler-Rowner Ebony sketchbook with Posca pens.
I was inspired by a Sketchbook Skool friend, Helen Wilding, to try sketching with Posca pens. She’s posted some fabulous work online recently made with these pens. I’ve never used them before but I bought a skin tone pack & had a play. I’ve got a lot to learn, most of all that I shouldn’t use them straight on sketchbook paper – I obviously need to prime the paper first because almost from the first stroke the surface was rubbing away. Nevertheless I kind of like the pens – being able to blend them with water is definitely an asset and I was able to use that ability to work up layers in much the same way as I do with Copics and watercolour. So, next time I will prime my page first and then see what more I can do.
