Tag: daily drawing
I did a little figure drawing practice yesterday during a work call and tried out some new Derwent Graphitint watercolors. Nice change from my super-bright Inktense kits.
I used a Moleskin Sketching notebook and Derwent Artist Pencil (Midnight 8100) for this drawing.
Another Zoom portrait, this one using some different colors as an experiment from my usual monochrome approach in the past. I used a pencil, a Uniball Vision pen, Derwent Inktense Watercolors, and Derwent Waterbrushes for this painting.
Live at Vienne
I’ve been slowly reading through the autobiography of Miles Davis and needed a subject for a sketch, so this seemed to fit. Just a simple pencil drawing from the album cover from Live at Vienne.
Blue bell wood
This one “looks like The Gruffalo” says my wife. I don’t disagree. 😃 This scene is part of the field where we take our dog Rubee for walks. The woods here are now finally full and the floor is covered with bluebell flowers (I think that is what they are called anyway). It’s quite cool…
Vivi’s Nikes 2021
I haven’t drawn the kids’ shoes before but was recently inspired by another artist to do it. Here is my daughter’s current most-worn pair of sneakers. I used Derwent Inktense watercolors, pencil, and a Uniball Eye pen for this one.
A quick and heavy-handed sketch of the hands of my wife and me on our wedding day. Saw this in a photo when I was looking through shots ahead of our recent anniversary and thought it would be a good exercise. Used 2B and 6B pencils in a Moleskin sketchbook for this drawing. Here is…
My daughter and son rewatched Wolfwalkers this past week (our favorite film of 2020) and I thought it would be cool to draw the main protagonist Robyn. I also wanted an excuse to play with the Lyra Groove Triple crayons again. They are water-soluble and have a really rich pastel-like character. The texture turns out…
Hand and thumb
Another Zoom portrait using racing green instead of the typical sepia. I like the way the green turned out and picked this snapshot as I thought the inclusion of the hand was interesting. Turned out pretty good I think. Progress. 📈 This piece was done using Derwent Inktense watercolors and water pens, along with a…
Back garden under construction
This is a view of our back garden as of a few weeks ago. Those trees you see are now in the ground, but things are still very much under construction. I hadn’t yet drawn the church by our house, so I liked the challenge of that as well as all the layers in this…
