The last few

The last few faces in my 2019 faces sketchbook, now looking for a new project for 2020.


Sketching faces

Getting close to the last page of my sketchbook of faces.

This little selection are ink, tech pens and biro.

It’s been a great project hoping to fill my book before the end of the year (committed now)

Thanks for visiting.






My artclass had a rained off urban sketching lesson,  so we ended up back in the classroom with afternoon tea as a subject.

Not sue if this was going to be my thing but ended up enjoying making a painting even created a darker brio and ink wash drawing.

Rainy days not so bad.


Daily sketch

Started this year with a little pledge to sketch a face everyday, things started well but finding a few hours  each day to sketch is not that easy, still I have  started to gather a book full of faces and any practice has got to be good practice, even if its not everyday.

Last term my art group looked at the 6 elements of art, how they are used and how they work together in art, we all took different motifs to illustrate them, some good learning  to think about when making art.


As part of our art class theme adornment we have been working with a set of pictures by Deen Dayal of Maharajahs, I  was keen to  put my pencil down and have a go with a Biro, also to work at a smaller scale, nothing like challenging yourself.

Scribbling in my sketchbook, this is an interesting way to sketch  fast and free, not sure if it works but might be something to try and develop.2015-08-15 07.50.26
