Heidi

This is Heidi, who is another Sktchy artist. Her photo, which was the inspiration for this portrait, is so joyful that I really felt the joy while I was painting this. It was fun to create!

I drew Heidi with a dark grey Unipin brush pen in a Moleskine watercolour sketchbook, painted her with Zecchi Toscana watercolours and finished the portrait with Prismacolor coloured pencils.

This is Daniela from Sktchy. I love to draw from inspiration photos where the image is framed in a mirror – this photo jumped out at me when I saw it and was just irresistible. I love the way mirrors contain and frame the face and I especially like the landscape aspect of this one, which I so rarely draw.

I was also using a new pen for the linework. I’ve just discovered the Unipin dark grey brush pen and I adore it. It can draw a very fine line but is pressure sensitive and very responsive. Expect to see me using it regularly. And for the colourwork I used Copic markers and Prismacolor coloured pencils.
