Here are a few sketches I've done this year.
This first one - two, actually - are from photos. I'd just gotten a Pentel Pocket Brush and wanted to see what kind of marks it would make.
In April we went hiking in Shenandoah National Park, and I took this amazing photo of my son-in-law standing on Crescent Rock. This is a sketch I did of that photo using a set of Pitt Big Brush markers, the Pentel brush pen and a little watercolor. I think the rocks suck, I've been working on that.
This is from a photo, Alaska, I think.
Another sketch done with the Pitt Big Brush markers. I bought the 'warm gray' set of 4 and so far I like them alot, although I still need to learn how to use them (example: the squared-off blob in the lower part).
