Over the past weekend I took part in an urban sketchers course, Pushing Your Sketching Boundaries: Drawing People, in Brighton. As part of her contribution to the course, one of the teachers, Isabel Carmona, was teaching students to draw portraits using watercolour to block in shapes and then add line if necessary to add definition. Inspired by her, I decided to use watercolour for today’s portrait, though I wasn’t brave enough to do it without pencilling in some guidelines first! I added some coloured pencil afterwards for extra definition and I’m very happy with the outcome.

I was using Promarkers for the first time today, and, oh dear, it shows! But, in the interests of showing the bad as well as the good, I’ve posted my face. I won’t be posting a face for the next few days because I’m doing an urban sketchers course, “Pushing Your Sketching Boundaries” in Brighton over the bank holiday weekend (check out my Instagram feed for photos).  But  I’ll be back posting faces next week. Have a good weekend.
