Sktchy app #mondaymuse graphite sketch

This evening I was checking out sktchy app for a photo to paint from, then I saw a link to Monday-muse, which featured the stunningly beautiful Bean Robinson. I don’t usually join in with the daily hashtag events on sktchy…lack of time and planning you see. But today I felt differently, and broke the habit, I guess really the photo took my fancy. I felt graphite should be the medium of choice, plus it’s quick, having no dry time to worry about. I also wanted to improve on the last quick sketch I did, the last one was on Kraft card, which was okay, but it wasn’t designed as a drawing medium, it has a very slight shine to it, and I struggled with layers, and erasing. The only thing I liked about the card was the tone-natural straw brown. I think I need to invest in some toned paper, proper stuff!

So for this sketch I used watercolour paper 140lb 12×9″ it had a better result, and I did spend a little longer on it compared to the last, about an hour, I guess. Next time I will use a smooth paper ๐Ÿ˜€

About REcreate-RebeccaEvansCreate

My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow. I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use. I never know what might inspire me next, but if itโ€™s hairy, I will be sure to try.
