Watercolour Portrait Sketch


This one was not so easy to sketch, as I wanted to have her eyes open and visible, unlike on the original photograph, so I had to adapt my sketch...and I did not like the hair across the face in the original photograph and left that.

In the upper photo (of photographer Mr. Earth: thanks btw) you can see the original to the left and my start to the right.

Urban Sketchers Hohenlohe - Sketching in Ilshofen


My day was very hektik and I was really not in the mood to go somewhere else after work, but I had promised to come and never cancel if I am not ill. 

As soon as I met the others of the group and sat down to sketch, all the hektik fell off and I was so happy that I came. We had such a fun time sitting in the sun, relaxing, chatting and sketching in Ilshofen centre. Lot's of nice people and talks and even mayor Blessing came by. What a lovely USk outing again. Thanks to all participants.

Watercolour Portrait Sketch


Hey, let's start the month of August with one of my favourite portrait sketches these days. I was having so much fun with this guy and the shadows and wrinkles and the beard...and of course the hot chilis...

Thank you to Mr. Earth for letting me have the wonderful photo reference.

Watercolour Portrait sketch


This is a portrait I did a longer time ago of a sketcher I met in Portugal. Her skin is very soft so I actually used a green colour to get the shadow areas right.

Watercolour Portrait sketch


This time, my portrait is a bit more experimental in terms of colour. I used very bright unusual shadow colours. Anyhow it worked. I like these experiments. Without experimenting we do not get let's do it!
