Jack

Today’s portrait is of Jack, painted in my Laloran sketchbook with Zecchi watercolours and then finished with Prismacolor coloured pencils.

Kaelin

I want to spend more time on my portraits and, in particular, try to draw at least some portraits that include more than just a face. So here is a little more of Kaelin than just her face.

I painted this in my Laloran sketchbook with Zecchi Toscana watercolours and finished it with Prismacolor coloured pencils.

Cin

Sktchy is having a Halloween portrait party. I’m a huge fan of The Walking Dead and so when I saw a photo of this zombie amongst Cin’s inspiration photos on Sktchy it was irresistible. And it was huge fun to paint.

I used my Zecchi Toscana watercolours to paint it in my Laloran sketchbook and then finished it off with my Prismacolor coloured pencils.

Claudio

Sometimes I make a portrait that I’m really happy with. This is one of those times. I love this portrait of Claudio. I feel like I got just the right combination of light and dark in the watercolour and then just the right amount of pencil marks to enhance it and not overwork it. That doesn’t happy often but when it does it’s good.

Veera

This portrait of Sktchy muse Veera is my submission for this week’s Old School Sktchy challenge, the word for which is “masterpiece”. I didn’t really want to try to reproduce an Old Master and I’m not brave enough to attempt the style of a great painter but I loved Veera’s photo of herself standing in front of a projection of Van Gogh’s ‘Almond Blossoms’. So this seemed a good choice for my masterpiece.

I drew this portrait in my A4 Moleskine sketchbook with Copic markers and Prismacolor coloured pencils.

Diana

It’s hard to focus on drawing today while the future of the UK is being decided in Parliament but I’m doing my best. Diana has provided a good distraction. I drew her in my A4 Moleskine sketchbook with Copic multiliners, Copic markers and some Polychromos coloured pencils.
