Sketchbook #3: Sketchbook Skool Selfies

Photograph of pencil self portrait drawing

Another Sketchbook Skool homework, and this week’s teacher was Koosje Koene. The homework was to draw a minimum of 7 self portraits (1 a day) in different styles.

Some by looking in a mirror, some (like this one) from a photo and some from imagination. I drew this one in HB pencil on 135gsm cartridge paper, which has a much smoother texture than my watercolour sketchbook.

I’d not drawn in pencil for ages. I generally prefer to use a pen these days but it was interesting to notice how familiar it still feels to sketch with a pencil.

      Of course stick men count – also, who says you can’t draw?? 🙂

    Good work. By the way, your hand-drawn social media icons look attractive on your web page.
