Jamie Oliver

A small sketch in a 6"x6" sketchbook. It felt like ages since I did a portrait or used coloured pencils but I can't believe it's actually been a year! It was lovely to get back to faces - hair, not so much!

I used a combination of Polychromos and Lyra Rembrandt pencils here. The sketchbook is by Green & Stone but made by Seawhite of Brighton and has slightly more tooth than cartridge paper.

Beautiful rendering and composition, Felicity!

HI Felicity! I wonder if you remember me. I just want to say your sketches are beautiful.

Felicity said...

Thanks Wil!

Mary J? Thank you and of course I do! :)

So very good! I've never seen a drawing of him before!

I think you did a wonderful job on the hair. I enjoy how the blue circle and the way the hair fades complement each other.
