Louise

Today’s face: Louise, inspired by Sktchy. I’m doing Sketchbook Skool’s new Illustration Nation kourse which started this week and my project for this kourse is to create some protest poster art style art prints. I started experimenting with this style for today’s daily Sktchy portrait. I tried using watercolour initially and that was a complete disaster – I just don’t have the technical skill. So I switched to my iPad Pro where I have so much more control. For this first attempt I was trialling the method more than anything so I stole Shepard Fairey’s colour palette and style. Now I kind of know what i’m doing I’m going to investigate other colour palettes and also think more about what kinds of backgrounds I might use.
