Day 6 - brush pen is my preferred tool and I'm comfortable with this.
Day 8 - thin nibbed pens bring out the perfectionist in me.
Day 9 - although I loved the ink lines my proportions were way out.
Day 10 - I have a better relationship with organic objects and thin lines
Day 12 - I unexpectedly enjoyed this colour pencil line
Day 13 - i loved the rough lines created by the ink running out - less room for overworking
Day 14 - oohhhhh my gosh where has 'drawing' with watercolour been all my life??
My main takeaways from my 14 days were:
- stick to thicker pens or brushed as I'm less likely to try adding ALL the details
- be open to the unexpected results
- don't go into a practice doubting myself
- always keep exploring and expanding your skills
Here are two sketches created on ordinary printer paper with watercolour and a nylon brush. They took between 5-10 minutes and I was gobsmacked at how easily I fell into this way of working. Its certainly going to open more opportunities as an art and illustrator.
