Sketches! In Pencil!





Some sketches from my recent sketchbook. I've been mainly sketching digitally on the iPad, and posting them here, so there will more frequent updates at that blog, for those interested.
These are done with the new palomino blackwing, which I've been enjoying.
Check them out.

there seems to be a quality which your sketches have in your pencil drawings, that is not as strong as in your digital sketches.

Hi! I'm Andy from Pencils.com (makers and sellers of the new Blackwing). I'm glad you like them, and I love your sketches, especially the Remedy Coffee scene! Can I feature them on a future Monday Pencil Artist post? We post one a week. Drop me a line if you get a chance!

James.. sketches great as always...

As to the Palamino Blackwings... I have not tried them, but will have to check them out. Currently I use the standard Derwent pencils for sketches after trying many different pencils. I guess it is all up to what each of us feel comfortable with.

What is the sketchbook.. a Moleskin book?
I have a couple that I use to do sketches for my watercolour paintings. I use the A3 size 12" x 16". Keeps every thing together. But I am now changing by making up my own sketchbooks using watercolour paper that I bind using double-wire binding. This allows me to open the book 100% and allows me to add sheets when I want.

Have not yet tried using my iPad for sketching.

Keep the sketches coming.. they are very inspiring and insightful.
