Coloured pencil people drawings

In my bag there are always two small sketchbooks. There used to be just one  but I like the Stillman & Birn Nova series so much (especially the tan paper) that I have added that as well. Makes for a heavy bag, but I never know what will catch my eye when I have a few minutes to draw. Of course that means I also have to carry more drawing supplies. I bought a cheap set of fat coloured pencils that are double-sided (six pencils/twelve colours) and quite like layering them on the toned paper. And the best thing about the toned paper is that you get to add white!

    Pencils are always great to have around in your bag. I like to have some watercolor pencils with me, too, as I can add water to the drawings later. Nice work!

    I do love coloured pencil, used to great effect here. Great execution, lovely double page spreads. I think I know where you were doing these. 😉


  6. these are so much fun! I can see you’re enjoying working on this paper!

    Just saw these. Very good. I think there is such liveliness, or energy in colored pencil strokes. I use them often and have more than I should have. And watercolor pencils. And as said above, easy to take with you.Hope you do more..
