I’ve not done any sketching this week, and thus picked up my sketchbook this afternoon thinking that I must do something for my Sunday blog post… and then had to laugh at myself. When I wrote last week I said I’d not had a chance to do much sketching then either, but it turns out that my notoriously poor memory was playing tricks on me again and I’d overlooked a page of sketches done last Monday. Just rough ones, done while I was on the phone with someone. Usually I draw with my pen first and then add the colour afterwards, but this time I was playing around and put the colour down first in rough swathes before adding detail and outline with the pen. Those two have turned out quite nicely, even though the hastily scribbled drawing in pen didn’t fare so well.
I must do some experimenting and tinkering with my scanner as the colours aren’t coming out very well (the leaves on that houseplant are actually green…). Anyone out there got any tips on how to get a scanner to scan more accurately?!
Jenna over at Timballoo has been sketching her breakfast this week, hop over to her blog and take a peek.
