Two things I love…
A finished sketchbook and one that I have just started (notice the wavy single page!)
Over the next couple of days there will be a few versions of this image as I plan(there is that word again) to try different techniques within different time frames.
#1 This is a 5 minute sketch (ink AND watercolour in 5 min) using my pentel pocket brush pen – this is really the best approach for a super quick sketch … I just can’t use it slowly.
Just for the record the watercolour took another 5 minutes to dry! (
BTW I went somewhat crazy with my title page – palette with paper which still needs some more work – but you can see two bits on this spread folded over the edge.)
#2 This is another 5 minute sketch as per #1 but using my mega pencil instead. This is fun!
BTW an exciting post about me here
