Hi everyone, I decided to draw a parrot because I don’t know much about them and I never drew one before. Above is a pen sketch: coloured with Posca markers, on Strathmore toned paper.
Lately, I’m enjoying fooling around in journals. For me, journals are more forgiving. The things in it don’t have to be works of art. Normally, I try to use all archival materials but in the journals I allow myself to fool around with non-archival ones as well.
Below is a little doodle of a face using Akashiya Sai Japanese brush markers. They are water-soluble and have beautiful, blendable and transparent colours. Here, they were applied on the journal surface and blended with a water brush:
The eyes and mouth were accented by Sakura Pigma Microns on wet surface and applied dry on the head. I love the bleed of the pigment from the microns and the subtle radiance that the Akashiya Sai produces.
