Steve Huison for the JKPP
Steve Huison - HB pencil
It's been a while since I used a pencil to sketch with but I created the quick portrait above with a HB while curled up on the sofa waiting for the rice to cook for dinner....hence the lack of tone, more of a two-tone sketch really. I don't like using lead in my journals because it tends to smudge with the daily trauma of being slung into various handbags, pages flipped and handled etc... but I'm not planning on using this A4 sketchbook for anything but the Julia Kay Portraits so I didn't have to worry about it this time. Steve has a fantastic face to sketch, I hope to return to it again with a different media. Here is the ref I used You may recognise Steve from films such as 'The Full Monty' and the classic soap 'Coronation Street'...I hope he sketches me!
