I'm introducing my son at pre school, so I've been spending some time there these past couple of weeks with him. To kill time I've been drawing a peace lily they have in the window. The top one is pen and ink in my new sketch book (yep, I just did it. I might put some color in it too, I'm not sure yet.)
These are done with pen and water soluble ink, and then water color, which dissolved the ink totally making it look kind of like a negative space drawing. I like the effect!
This last sketch includes a copy of Leonardo da Vincis drawing "study for the last supper". I'm thinking that copying other artists portraits might help me improve my own portrait drawing skills.
Here's the reference picture I used (I tried to make it smaller, but don't seem to succeed in any easy way, so this is what you get):
