Hello Friends , Welcome back to my blog!! I am sharing with you all a pen and pencil sketch of the same landscape " Kirkwall Harbour basin - Scotland." The inspiration for this sketch is from the book - " Beautiful landscapes " by Diane Wright of drawing made easy series.
This is the first book which I had shopped when I was in US. Though I had used it for learning the basics I didn't try sketching an entire landscape. I bought this book along while coming from US and started sketching the outline of this landscape to recover from jet lag.
Later that week I had to go the lab for routine tests. Since it will take 3 hours for the tests to complete took the sketch book and pencils with me and started shading . Many people who passed by stood there for sometime seeing me sketch. Though initially it was embarrassing slowly started enjoying the company of people around me. By the time I was out of the lab I was done with this sketch.
After seeing the video tutorial of Devin Viele I got interested in sketching using ball point pen so was searching for some reference images to start with . I spotted a sketch similar to the above so thought of sketching the same using ball point pen. This is my debut attempt in ball point sketch, I used Rorito 0.7mm ball point pen.
Hope you all liked the sketches. Your feedback/ suggestions are welcome. Do tell me which one you like better. See you soon with another post. Have a crafty weekend.
