I have been getting more and more into sketching this past year. I have not blogged about it for the simple reason that Canon were lining their pockets via enforced obsolescence and they didn't produce a driver for my old scanner. They seem to have got their act together so now I can use my antiquated but perfectly good bit of kit with my iMac.
Below is a sketch of a fox skull I did when I was in Derbyshire earlier this summer. At the time I was using pen, pencil and traditional watercolours (I have now moved onto the most excellent watercolour pencils). The white is from a Uni-Ball Signo. I discovered them after reading Ben Templesmith sing their praises. These little gel pens are amazing and are a much more portable and user-friendly than traditional brush-paints. I have also tried white Pentel Hybrid Gel pens but the 'flow' does not seem quite so good on them.
The yellow ground you see is the paper from a trusty old Moleskine. I really loved the hue of these pages but, alas, the latest batch of books I've seen seem to have much whiter paper.
