Liya

Today’s face: Liya, inspired by Sktchy. I was experimenting with today’s daily tip for the Sktchy subscription for this portrait, which was about adding water to create fluidity in the colours. This isn’t something I would ever have done had it not been suggested by artist Sergei Romanenko today, but I like the outcome a lot.

Daisy

Today’s face: Daisy, inspired by Sktchy. This is a portrait of my daughter Daisy. She often complains about me drawing her but yesterday another Sktchy artist, Bastardillo, drew a portrait of her from my Sktchy photos. She was so delighted with the portrait that she joined Sktchy herself and uploaded some photos in the hope that other artists will draw her. So now I can choose her as my Sktchy muse.

Sebastian

Today’s face: Sebastian, inspired by Sktchy. I’ve been on holiday for the past week and this is the longest time I’ve been away from my Copics since I started drawing portraits more than 2 years ago. I’ve been drawing every day, but urban sketching, not portraiture, so it’s so good to get back both to my beloved Copics and to my comfort zone of drawing faces!
