Motorway Sketch

motorway sketch

I actually sketched this at the end of January but hadn’t uploaded a scan of it. This is a quick sketch from a photo I took on the way back from Nottingham, Ratcliffe-on-Soar power station in the distance.

I used a couple of different fineliners, Windsor & Newton watercolour markers and a Kuretake waterbrush.

More Sketchbook Pages- The Coffee Collective, Stourbridge

Sketchbook page- 28/06/16

Ink pen and watercolour.

Spent a couple of hours in Stourbridge last week, sketched a few things while enjoying a cup of tea in The Coffee Collective cafe. A lot of interesting things to sketch in there- yes they have small toy dinosaurs and origami cranes dotted about the place.

Another Sketchbook Page

Another A6 sketchbook page- 23rd was stuck in traffic on motorway travels, 26th just doodling.

I think you can tell I love the blue Tombow brush pen I bought a couple of weeks ago.

Couple of recently done pages in my small sketchbook. On the left trying out some colourful Tombow brush pens and on the right some tool sketches planning for Illustration Friday a couple of weeks ago.

The top image is the scan of the pages and you can see the orange looks a little more red – not sure which colour I like better.

Illustration Friday-Shelter

My submission for this week’s Illustration Friday, Shelter. A sketchy, inky drawing on a Moleskine page.

The base layer on the page is tissue paper that was wrapped around my soap from Lush. The drawing itself is pigment ink pen, watercolour and acrylic ink.
