I’m working this bank holiday Monday because it’s crazy busy at the moment and I’m off on a little holiday soon. I’d like to leave things in a good situation so that I can relax and forget all about work while I’m away. This little oil burner sits on the windowsill next to my desk releasing cinnamon smelling goodness throughout the day.
About this sketch:
- Materials: 0.5mm HB pencil, watercolours & size 10 round brush
- Paper: cheap A3 150gsm sketchpad paper
- Process: I was actually pleasantly surprised by this paper – it took watercolour rather well. Sucked it up almost instantly and there could be no lifting out or manipulation but it handled several layers with ease – not much buckling and the surface texture kept in good condition. The whole thing took around 35 minutes with a 10 minute twitter break to let the first pass dry. ~5 mins drawing, ~15mins painting. Larger than I normally work.
