I find that my sketchbook work tends to be very centered around portraits and quotes. I suppose that’s because I find faces to interesting and that I enjoy creating narratives in peoples faces.
Most of the time in my sketchbooks I draw in Biro or any black pen I have to hand. First I’ll find inspiration, either in image, person, object or quote and I’ll do a rough idea of what I want to page to look like and to make sure the features are accurate.
Then I go in with pen and once that’s done I decide if I want to add another aspect to make the drawing mixed media. Most of the time if I feel an image needs it I would add watercolour, either to add more tone or to brighten it up with some colour.
