My trusty boots drawn last month after the first (very light) snowfall of the year. Below is an earlier sketch of them, showing the change in my approach over the last two years; moving from black felt-tip lines and watercolour, to fountain pen and dilute ink washes. The new way’s faster, but here I think I prefer the older slower bolder one! Maybe it’s just the more dramatic composition and higher contrast? Back to the drawing board…
Noodlers Brown 41 in fountain pen, dilute Noodlers Brown 41, Bad Blue Heron and Platinum Blue Pigment ink in water brushes, A5 – 20 mins1mm Pigma black pen, water-colour, A6 – 30 mins
Great boots sketch! I, too, like the earlier sketch with the higher contrast. Nice line work.
I like them both, but that earlier sketch really stands out.
Thanks Mel, ink is quicker, but I’ll be trying to do more paining this year… Ed
