Here's my drawing for today:
I made this with a method you might like to try - here's what to do:
- Choose a drawing from your sketchbook.
- Take a digital photo of it, or do what I did and pop it on the scanner.
- Save the file.
- Tear out a new page in your sketchbook, leave at least half an inch at the spine for re-attachment.
- Put the page in your computer printer.
- Open the image file and choose Print, play with the scale settings. I printed a few varying the scale between 200% and 300%. By enlarging the original drawing you'll exaggerate all the lovely marks and visual texture.
- Use a gluestick and attach the printed drawing back into the book.
- Work into it to add more detail, colour, pattern or other motifs and shapes.
I used Derwent Graphitint pencils (water-soluble) to draw the keyhole shapes and fill in some colour, then added a little clean water to wash the pencil marks and intensify the colour.
I hope that helps you fill a few more pages in your sketchbook. Have fun!
