Quick Observational Drawing With Marker

from $11.99

Observational drawing is a relaxing activity that involves taking the time to observe the small details in your surroundings. While on vacation or at the beach, collect shells, small stones, twigs or flowers that have unique colours and textures and draw them with marker.

Instructions:

1. Sketch the shapes of the objects you want to draw with an HB pencil and then add some detail.

2. Using a thicker pencil (2B or more), go over certain areas to create shadowing.

3. To add colour, start with a light colour like yellow. Use the tip of the brush pen for details and press more firmly to highlight a given feature and fill in larger surface areas.

4. For gradations, go over a given colour with a slightly darker colour and then go over it again with the initial colour to mix the two shades.

5. Highlight the sketched objects with a few marker strokes to create depth and really bring out the colours.

Tips

If you’re more spontaneous and prefer not to linger over details, skip right to the marker stage. Even if the marker drawing is less detailed, the colours will liven it up. Besides, you can always add details in pencil afterward!
