Sketchbook Ideas 2

This is another fun way of drawing to try - working on black paper. You can buy large sheets of black paper and cut them to size or buy black paper sketch books. These figures were first drawn onto A5 size paper with a white gel pen and then gouache (opaque watercolour) was added. Subjects including flowers, butterflies and tropical fish look really good on this background.


This is my cat and is a pencil drawing onto cartridge paper, with watercolour and watercolour pencils added. The white fur on the side of her face and under her chin is the plain paper and is emphasised by the adjacent darker tones.

For something quite different again, this is a pen drawing onto cartridge paper. The picture was then scanned into the computer and the colour was added by airbrushing in Photoshop.


My advice is to keep drawing and to experiment, because that is how to find out which style of drawing appeals to you. Most of all have fun with your drawing!
