Sunday Sketches

Todays sketch is rendered in graphite and Derwent Grafitint pencils. It was interesting trying to do a face with these pencils.  The colors I had were more suited for landscapes. I did enjoy adding just a little bit of color to a graphite drawing.

To see what other sketchers are doing today check out Sophia's blog


  1. I really like the eyes and you have really captured a great expression in them... nice sketch and hope you have lots of drawing time this week..xx

  2. Hi Kate, love this sketch and like the way you do the writing on her jumper... :)
