Austin

This was a tough draw and Sktchy muse Austin’s portrait is full of mistakes. It’s too wide (his face in the inspiration photo is much longer and narrower), the mouth isn’t open wide enough and I struggled to capture the shadows and lines well with coloured pencils. But it’s all learning and I’m very much still learning when it comes to coloured pencils.

I drew this in a Hannehmühle Nostalgie sketchbook with a range of coloured pencils, including Prismacolor, Derwent Artist and Bruynzeel Design.

I love drawing things. These days I am rarely found without a pen, pencil or stylus in my hands. In my working life I spend a lot of time in meetings and classrooms, reading papers and strategies, so my home life provides a creative antidote to all that! I also have chronic pain, lots of it. I have scoliosis, fibromyalgia and CRPS, so my life is a balancing act, trying to balance work, which make me feel part of the real world, with pain, which is ever present, and art, which soothes my pain.
