Portraits & Sketches

I think that I am using fine clutch pencils more often than standard pencils now. I like the accuracy and economy of line  that can be achieved with really fine clutch pencils, though if you need to cover ground standard pencils are what you need.

Next up is an oil portrait (from a while ago) that has so much wrong about it that it shouldn't work. Still, the likeness is reasonable so I include it in this post.

Interloper Watercolour

During the recent good weather I was struck by this single red tulip amongst a drift of daffodils so I did a quick rough and ready watercolour sketch of the interloper.
