'blue hat', graphitint pencil sketch, around 7 by 5 ins on paper
'trusting toucan', mixed media, 12 ins square, card
'ice-cream', ATC, pen and watercolours on card
My sketch this morning for the #29faces challenge was the girl in the blue hat, using graphitint pencils by +derwentpencils . The girl was from a photo reference on wetcanvas.
Graphitint are water-soluble graphite pencils with muted colours for a hint of colour. I have a set of 12 colors. I used them lightly in this sketch of the girl because its the first time I've used them and because a delicate touch seemed to suit the age of the girl.
The girl with the toucan uses mixed media, but predominantly caran d'ache water soluble crayons for the figures. I really love the blending ability of these crayons: great for skin tones. This is from imagination; although I did a quick sketch of a toucan a few weeks ago from a reference photo on wetcanvas which helped with the drawing of the bird.
The last in my trio for today's post is an ATC for a summer themed swap in one of my google+ groups. This was from a doodle.
I will link to paintpartyfriday.
Have a great weekend!
