The last few Summer sketches from Tenby. This time people-watching around the town, moving from fountain-pen to ink-brush for the key lines. I was using a fairly ‘blunt’ brush then (a well-worn detailer water-brush) filled with dilute ink, so the pictures weren’t as crisp as the ones done with pen, but I began to see benefits from the change – more expression in the lines, and speed, so I could start to draw people who aren’t sat down!
Lexington grey in fountain-pen and water-brush, water-colour, A5 – a couple of minutes per figure?
Love the Tenby sketches, especially as we have lived in Tenby and Saundersfoot for the last 15yrs.I sketch and paint in a very similar style and your blogg keeps me focused in finding time to paint. Keep up the lovely work. Have you ever put a book together of your work or sold any prints. Thanks, Graham
Many thanks Graham, and lucky you living in the area! Do you share your sketches on online at all? All my sketches are in journals, so couldn’t really be exhibited, but maybe a series of Tenby prints would work?
I’ll be back again this Summer, maybe we could meet up for a sketch then? Best wishes Ed
