I have a technical questio stef, do you use a pencil and after you put watercolors and ink or you draw directly with an ink pen?

Thanks in advance and of course i love this sketches they look so spontanious!!!

Stef said...

Carlos: For those ones, I drew directly with a dark warm grey Tombow pen, they react very well to water, and then a shade of blue with watercolour for the shadows to have an organic result.

Clay said...

Stef, those are really beautiful. You have such control, especially notable in the detail of the second image. I'm envious. The boat is my favorite. Those shadows are so descriptive of the form.

Those drawings are so good... they have that strange quality that leads to compulsive viewing. Enhorabona!

adriana said...

Wow...just wow. Your sketches are amazing, and so full of life!

I need to learn to not be afraid of sketching...I think that's what messes mine up =P

these are just plain great, everyone of them. my favorite is the boat, the blue strokes add an extra feel to the structure. everything in there is so balanced it's a pleasure to watch really.
