I really enjoy drawing, though absolutely hate starting off. I have a thought or idea and then put it off for days, sometimes weeks. I’m not really sure why this happens as once I settle down to it, I get completely lost in it and even if it’s not very good (see dodgy hummingbird!) I love the process. I really struggled to get the colours right on this and will revisit a similar image at a later date to try and improve this. I also did the head and beak using far too much graphite pencil instead of colours.
This is quite a small drawing and I’ve been using an A5 moleskin sketch book mostly. I’ve now had the courage to expand to a full A4 sketch pad – how ambitious! I have just had to steal myself to start a new project – it’s a pencil outline so far – so it might be a while before it’s ready to share.
