Following on from yesterday’s post, as you know I’m trying out a mystery ink. Here I’m testing it out on the shower scene from the old 60s horror movie Psycho. This movie, specifically this scene, was the reason that my mum wouldn’t allow us to install a…

Its Mystery Ink time again! I realise I didn’t do a roundup post for my thoughts on Mystery Ink #17, which I really did like so I’ll have to rectify that soon as part of my blog reorganisation! I skipped mystery ink #18 to so other people were able to…

This secret sketch session was with Gil, he was doing 1 minute poses when I arrived so I got 5 and a half of those in (see the image below), then he laid down with his head on a rugby ball for 30mins, I could see the tension in his neck so it didn’t look…

I arrived for this session while they were moving the sofa into place. Phil did a 30min pose, I started this drawing from his eyes outwards and thought that he’d end up much bigger on the page (I actually thought he’d be over a double page spread). He…

This week’s Friday face is me! I needed a new profile picture so I decided to try out my new range of zig watercolour brushpens. I quite like them but I think I need to organise them better so that the colour that comes out on the paper isn’t such a…

This is a throwback to my school days many moons ago when I did a lot of chalk pastel work (pastel pencils were my favourite medium). I’m not sure if he is an otter or some other river dwelling creature but he’s certainly very cute!

This picture from RedditGetsDrawn was so cute with the little cat, Kiki, sniffing the flowers. Unfortunately for her owner I’ve made her face a bit too oval and a bit too wide at the bottom so she had a super chin now. Practice practice practice. Sorry…

When I arrived at the London Drawing life class last Tuesday they were in the middle of two minute poses. I got 3 and a bit poses down before we changed to a 30min pose. I used my favourite long pose technique of sketching the outline and small details in…
