Conte crayons & charcoal on cream tinted paper- 30 mins
Another challenging self portrait sketch from life. This time a quick rendering in Conte crayons. It has many imperfections but I do believe I was a little kinder to myself in this one so things are looking up!
Noodler's ink in sketchbook
Two more lead-free ink sketches from my sketchbook. Both were sketched very quickly, one worked and one went pear shaped. The first is supposed to be Billie Piper but I managed to give her 'the' worse nose job I've seen in a long time as well as other errors. I thought running the water brush over her may plump her up a little and soften her...I thought wrong! The second is my Son and was sketched while he drew at the kitchen table a couple of minutes before we left for school. I'm a little happier with that one!
EDM challenge #124 - Draw something yellow Gouache in sketchbook
Lastly, one of the EDM challenges, to sketch something yellow. I chose my yellow Lamy fountain pen that I have filled with Noodler's black/red ink, the same pen I used for the two sketches above. I have a red Lamy too, that I keep filled with Noodler's Lexington Gray ink, they are wonderful pens.
