TV sketching - now in technicolour!
I was watching Who Do You Think You Are? the other day -a programme that traces the family histories of certain celebrities - and was very taken with Zoe Wanamaker's glasses! In fact she must have had about 4 different pairs on throughout the programme, all of which I would love to have, and not just her glasses, I was coveting some of her clothes as well! This black and white spotted pair were my favourite, teamed with a lovely red cardi (I live in cardis!) so I knew I had to draw them.
How to make those white spots really stand out? Of course, that lovely brown paper sketchpad I keep meaning to use. I don't know why I don't use it because it's so much fun and especially using white pencil for highlights. It makes doing hair a lot easier, especially for this very tousled look of Zoe's. It's probably the only technique I don't think too much about beforehand- I just throw in a bit of this and a bit of that and see what happens. I think there may be a few more in the near future!
