These free days over Christmas and New Year have been close to magic. Amongst reading, netfix’ing, coffee, magazines and endless plans for 2016, I allowed myself more artsy activities than usual 🙂 The result?
I worked in ink and watercolour – I feel I can’t have enough of these yet. Those of you interested in drawing will recognise the technique used in the first two sketches: continuous line drawing (explained here). You basically place the pen on paper, and start drawing without lifting your pen until the sketch is done. Once you have your contours, you fill them in using watercolours. That’s it!
The third sketch is for my sister 🙂 I basically ink draw things she loves (fashion, travel, photography, music, bicycles and cupcakes) and added different soft watercolour washes in the end.
And to show you how easy it was and how much fun I had, here a time lapse on the birds sketch 🙂
Until next time, dare to play with your ideas!
