For this quick sketch I used a dark sepia inkpen, and added washes of “natural brown” Inktense ink. It’s on A5 watercolour paper.
I snapped a photo of the line drawing before adding the washes on paper. Thought I’d firstly add some brown “gesinski” ink washes on it in the “Procreate” app to see what it would look like (and for fun).
Then over the washes I used some “Procreate” charcoal in various colours. You can see that unfold in the video below. I printed the colour version, which turned out quite well.
I’m yet to add colour to the original work…I may just keep it sepia toned.
Below is a collection of small watercolours, inkpen, and pencil…A6 size and under… many faces – as usual. Pears, flowers, landscapes….and birds in the back ground are often my subject matter.
Mostly I work from memory and imagination – though years of drawing practice from observation, is a help in working this way.
There’s plenty of birds around where I live, and we encourage them to visit – as I mention in this post, here.
I’m thankful† for all my creative opportunities!
Thanks for viewing my art. Stay safe.
