This is a sketch in pen and ink of a cat, that I think I’ve drawn once before, long ago! (I just confirmed – I did a drawing of Binky the cat in April) I saw some photo’s on the catowner’s blog (or does it actually belong to the cat?) – and decided to do another quick sketch. See the photo’s here.

Want to see more cats? Come see my portrait of Benji the cat  or this group portrait of three cats on my pet portrait page tclausen.net

Or just look a little around here on this blog, and you’ll find tons!

This was my 762th drawing since 9th Seeptember 2014.

Sketch of a kid who likes crabs in pena nd ink

A Reddit gets drawn sketch of a boy, who aparrently likes this brand of brightly packaged crabs. Sea-food is healthy, so I suppose it’s all good.

I went for pen and ink again – I think I went a little overboard with the ink in his face this time. I should have left it a little whiter at some places, but it can be hard to control with ink. Especially if you can’t bother to slow down and do it properly!

It just dawned on me that I ought to show you the reference photos that I use from these RDG sketches, since they’re already online, so let me start to do that from now on. Here this one

This was my 761’th sketch since 9th September 2014.

Quick sketch of a guy with his camera

 

Again a Reddit gets drawn sketch – this guy wanted to have a drawing made of him holding his camera. I wanted to try one of those really quick pen sketches with loosely added watercolor to make it come alive. I often see people making those, and really love how this minimal attack can give really nice results.

I think the last time I tried doing something similar was when I tried to copy some great watercolor cyclist sketches by Maxine Dodd very very long ago.

I actually drew this so fast that I accidentally dipped my watercolor brush in my coffee. But never worry. It tastes just fine.
