I’m loving this loose, gestural kind of sketch. It feels…liberating. The style is something new for me.
I like that it’s fast. The gestural strokes allow me to be nonchalant about the lines, and gave me permission to make mistakes.
I can finally visualise myself sketching on location. Something which is alien to me and seemingly unreachable, as I was more used to drawing in my “studio”.
For this new style, I have yet to find out that if I stop short of adding watercolour, and just keep it as an ink sketch, would that be okay? The thought was driven by a self-limiting expression that since I’m known as an artist (actually, who knows me? Self-deprecating laugh) who does primarily black & white pen drawing, would it confuse people if I do more colours?
Then again, I could add watercolour. Who’s stopping me?
