Alana

Today’s face: Alana, inspired by Sktchy. Today’s daily tip for the Sktchy subscription, from Sergei Romanenko, was to do a semi blind contour drawing, so I did this drawing of Alana very quickly and without looking at the paper, only looking at the page two or three times to check the placement of my pen. Then I added some light watercolour washes, again relatively quickly, in about 15 minutes. All in all the portrait took about 17 minutes rather than my usual couple of hours and I really like the looseness of line and lightness of touch in it.

Drawn in a Seawhites sketchbook with a Micron 01 pen and painted with Zecchi Toscana watercolours.
