Collin & friends

Today’s face: Collin & friends, inspired by Sktchy and today’s Inktober 2017 prompt “filthy”. I decided to try something different today. I wanted to capture the frantic, filthy & fun atmosphere of Collin’s photo of holi festivities so I tried an ink single line contour drawing and then some watercolour and neocolour crayon. My sketchbook wasn’t wild about the mixed media but it survived!

Drawn in a Midori Cotton sketchbook with a Micron 01 pen and painted with Greenleaf and Blueberry and Jane Davenport watercolours and Caran d’Ache Neocolor II crayons.


Daisy

Today’s face: Daisy. This is a portrait of my daughter Daisy and is part of this week’s homework for the Sketchbook Skool Urban Sketching kourse. This week’s klass is taught by the illustrator Lapin and the homework is to draw a “big head” portrait (where the head is the largest part of the portrait and the body can be drawn smaller to fit in the page) of a live subject and paint it with watercolour, mixing all our colours from just 3 watercolours, blue, red and yellow. Lapin also includes a speech bubble in his portraits to record something of the conversation he has with his subject while drawing and he asks his subject to sign their portrait so I followed his protocol with my portrait. Drawn in a Hannehmühle Nostalgie sketchbook with a Unipin 03 pen, Jane Davenport watercolours and Prismacolor coloured pencils.
