Guber, Pen and Watercolour on A5 watercolour paper. This sketch was created for a work colleague using a few of her photos of her cat as a reference. I used Sakura Pigma Micron pens for the initial sketch, then added colour with watercolours.
I started this sketch of Dave the labradoodle earlier this month, but finally finished it today! Drawn using Sakura Pigma Micron Pens in an A5 sketchpad.
Created using a couple of reference photos, this was a gift for a colleague. He was fun to draw!

While drawing, I noticed the strongest features of a giraffe were the huge eyes and incredibly long eyelashes. I also noticed that they have a very oddly shaped head and nose, which was … Continue reading Technicolour Giraffe
Following my recent visits to Suffolk Owl Sanctuary, I have a variety of great photos and sketches of birds and mammals - lots of inspiration! When I first started photography, my aim was simply to take my own art reference photos to work from. This means that, as well as focussing on high quality images … Continue reading Raven
Although I've sketched fennec foxes a few times in the last year (being desert animals that sleep most of the day, they make lovely drawing subjects!) I hadn't gotten around to creating a full size drawing of them. The reference photo I used for this drawing was a slightly grainy image I'd taken in 2016 … Continue reading Fennec Foxes
