Quick fountain pen portrait sketches #10. Portrait for Julia Kay's Portrait Party on Flickr. Kate's photo with a striking striped sweater and her description in which she says she is an avid surfer inspired me to give it this twist. Concerning the waves, I tried to add a touch of Hiroshige.

Another sketch inspired by aspects of Bonnards work as seen in a recent exhibition, particularly an interior scene, perspective, a faithful little (dachshund) dog and a cat demanding attention. It started out as a quick preliminary sketch of this idea I had for a watercolour, but I got a bit carried away drawing with my new fountain pen and eventually decided to just leave it as it is and do a separate watercolour version later on.
Quick fountain pen portrait sketches #1. Trying to get a grip on drawing with a fountain pen that I got as a birthday present (November 7th) I decided to start doing quick portrait sketches with it on a regular basis (preferably every day). With no preliminary measuring or sketching and little opportunity for corrections because of the factual definiteness of the ink lines I also hope to improve my hand-eye coordination in combination with portraiture skills. And for the rest it's just accepting mistakes that occur and hoping to learn from them. The person portrayed is Jerry, a member of Julia Kay's Portrait Party on Flickr.
