Day 519: Kolkata Villa
Reference image: actually found this one for today’s sketch
So, this was the first of the sketches done with new brush pen and a bit of a learning curve over the felt tip one here. Turns out it isn’t actually that easy to get a thin consistent line with it, without any practise. Anyway the subject matter was pretty random, just a funky looking villa in amongst the other houses in Kolkata, India. Thought it was quite detailed but overall a simple shape that would make a good sketch to do to introduce myself to the proper brush pen.
Turns out that although I don’t mind the outcome, it probably would have been a better idea to have started with something a bit more simple than this photo. One of the best things I found though using the brush pen is that its a lot quicker to actually lay down ink using it than the fel.t tip one (and definitely the fine liners) and therefore the sketch was pretty quick. Hopefully I’ll get even quicker with a bit more practise with the pen which will make the daily sketches a bit more easy to get done, but we’ll have to see.
