Sunny sports day at school, watercolours, 11 by 7.5 ins., paper. Face 23.
Movie star wannabe, colour pencils, 9 by 6 ins. journal. Face 22.
Little boy, graphite pencil, 9 by 6 ins., journal. Face 21.
Face 21: Outline study from a reference photo on wetcanvas.
Face 22: Sketch practice from imagination using colour pencils. I have 2 small sets of polychromos and luminance pencils and both are very creamy and a delight to use as they glide over paper. Colour pencils were my colour medium of choice at school. I almost never use them these days. So it will be good to do more with this medium, especially using richer depth of colour.

At secondary school, I had a very sportsy best friend and she inspired me to join in games with her at school. So I tried everything ...swimming team, hockey team, relay races, long jump, table tennis. I am glad I did because now I have all those memories. However.... I grew up to be 'bookish'.
Were you a sportsy type?
Whatever your bag, have a great weekend!
Bye for now...
