Pen sketches

Pen sketches

After seeing The Blue Green Alien’s cool Inktober drawings, I bought a Uni Pin Fine Line and did a few sketches today. Sketching with pen is so different to pencil (I feel like I have a lot less control), but it’s fun. I’ll definitely keep doing it, amongst my pencil sketches, because it can only give me a stronger foundation for painting.

By the way, that weird thing in the middle of the page is either an alien slug with a single eye or the end of sawn-off stick; I’m not sure which. 🙂

Tree at the park

This was a tree I saw at the park tonight. I liked the shape.

I did an initial sketch and then tried to recreate it with watercolours when I got home. Need some better materials—and to learn how to paint with watercolours. 🙂
