It's April, so obligatory hares this week! I work in a giant supermarket, a hub of inspiration with all those scan-able rabbit novelty things this spring … So here we have it, graphite and pen continuous-line drawings of hares on sugar paper and card. Remember to click or tap on the hare-y face you want for the un-cropped version, enjoy!
What annoys me about watercolour painting is that is loses my lines. I have really got stuck into the continuous-line drawing, when I finish the drawing on the watercolour paper thinking it would make a nice painting — it doesn’t. It masks the drawing underneath and it is so frustrating.
So I tried something a little simpler, using sugar paper, graphite and pen I was able to showcase my lines and reveal my peacock — and I'm happy with it!
These are the words I needed to read, for me to keep persisting until I satisfy my own expectations of myself.
