Sketching Small

feb blog

February has been pretty cold here in London and so I’ve not really ventured out to sketch. Instead, I have embraced sketching small and the everyday items around me.

This month, I have also been reading some fantastic books by established and amazing Urban Sketchers. If you are new to Urban Sketching or want to give it a try, I highly recommend any books or courses by Marc Taro Holmes. You can find his blog, ‘Citizen Sketcher’ here – It really is a worth of information and amazing sketches!

One of my key take-aways from Marc is to keep my sketching kit light – Platinum Carbon Fountain Pen, Kuretake Sumi Brush Pen and a Mechanical Pencil. He explains as a beginner it is  more important to draw as often as you can i.e. think about quantity over quality initially.   As much as I love watercolour and colour in general, I’ve decided to go back to basics and just focus on sketching regularly with my minimal sketching kit.
