This time I only have two drawings to share.
For this drawing I was running out of ideas. I didn’t want to repeat something I’d already painted, and I looked around to see what might be interesting. I saw some books and put them on top of each other on a chair.
I used felt tip pen and watercolour pencils, blending the colours carefully with a wash.
This was an experiment that failed miserably. I wanted to create interesting tones with a wash of felt tip pen.
I didn’t realise that wetting the pastels would drag some of the ink below to a nice smudged tone. On the other hand, it’s useful to make mistakes and learn what not to do next time. I also feel the portrait looks rather harsh with those thick lines.
But I love that blue bottle and the dress, and those nectarines tasted delicious.
I think I’m reaching the end of my finished drawings.
Just a few more blog posts to come: With some of my best images, those that challenged me and delighted me too.
I hope you enjoyed this.
Thanks for reading it, and see you again soon.
