I drew this in Frans Koene’s (from The Netherlands) journal as part of the Awesome Flying Sketchbooks project. In Frans’ own work, he often includes a picture of his motor scooter, so of course I had to add one to my sketch too.
This is the old downtown section of my little city. I used Lamy Safari fine and extra fine nibs with Noodler’s Bulletproof black and Schmincke watercolor.
I drew all these with a Tombow water soluble marker, then added watercolor. The entire sketch is made with one continuous line. I started with the lantern, then moved on to the duck, and finally to the jacaranda seed pods.
In Sketchbook Skool last week, Brenda Swenson demonstrated how to do continuous line drawings. Well, I got started, and just couldn’t stop. So, here is a whole page of them!
I drew this selfie from a photo. I turned both the photo and my sketchbook upside down, so that I’d draw the lines I saw rather than eyes, nose, mouth, etc. I’m pretty happy with the result, but my chin isn’t really that big!
This is a selfie I sketched from a photo. I’m really pleased with it from the top of my head to the bottom of my nose, but I’m not sure whose mouth jumped into my drawing…it sure isn’t mine!
Continuing on with my SBS homework from Koosje Koene, here are two quick sketch selfies. The first is done while looking in the mirror and the second is from a photo.
