It all started with a few female doodles from imagination, an exercise in loosening up and feature placement.
Then my new sketchbook arrived!
I purchased it from Anna Hawthorne Studios over on Etsy. It is 5x5 inches in size and filled with medium weight drawing paper...I fell in love with it's red paisley cover.
I was having so much fun with my loosening up session that I decided to fill the pages of my new book with loose female faces from imagination. Each one is sketched in under 5 mins and then I added some colour with watercolour pencils, wetting a little with my waterbrush here and there. I chose the pencils because I don't think this paper would take heavy washes and they allowed me to get a good amount of bright colour down without any risks.
