Live Sketching Waterlilies in watercolour

https://youtu.be/VCsT0cT2YtI

Join me as I do a quick sketch of waterlilies on, what I call, the lost pond. We’ve found it now so it isn’t lost anymore! Water lily leaves are basically circular so, to draw them from a side view, they need to be ellipses but all set on the same plane.

I didn’t have very long to do this, about half an hour with set up time. The video has only about 30 seconds edited from it. I drivel on a bit, but I hope some of my chat is useful. Otherwise it’s a nice, peaceful, sunny afternoon by the pond

Three Marker Challenge – Tunacorn

https://youtu.be/YKxCB32H5Ro

Finally a three marker challenge video – I’ve been asked to do it often. In this video I draw a Tunacorn – or my idea of one and colour it in with pink, purple and green – not the most friendly colours!

I said I’d let one person who filled in my questionnaire the chance to choose a video. Mikkel SH was the lucky winner and Mikkel asked me to do a Three Marker Challenge, to draw a fantasy creature in pink purple and green. Well this video is the result – Hope you like it.

Follow me on Patreon and you will also get a pdf with the pencil sketch, so you can practice drawing over the top of it or onto another sheet with a window or light box. Also the finished coloured version and the ink version, so you can try your own hand at colouring in with three marker pens.

A whole week sketching at The Big Malarkey Children’s Festival in Hull

A couple of weeks back, I spent the whole week recording The Big Malarkey Children’s Festival in Hull. It was an amazing week put on as part of the City of Culture celebrations. Here are all the videos I made in order.
