We are going on vacation soon so hopefully I'll get in some actual on-location sketching done instead of having to draw from photos.
I also got a new fountain pen that I'm trying out. The Platinum Carbon Desk Fountain Pen. I'll do a review on it soon.
Here's a couple of sketches I did last Saturday from photos. I think I sketched and painted both of these in under an hour.
Citizen Sketcher about painting portraits in layers so I thought I would give it a try. No sketching first, just building them with watercolors starting with simple shapes then adding detail in layers.
Although these are embarrassing to share (as are all of my sketches) I hope that someday I'll be able to look back on these and see them as a stepping stone. I also need to remember I've only been sketching and painting since December (6 months) so not to judge myself so harshly.
