So for the month of July, The Sketchbook Challenge announced the the theme to be circles! Well I had so much with this one. I’ve developed an obsession with bubbles, particularly drawing bubbles close together. So in honor of this months theme I went with that and created a new sketch.
For this piece I started out using a Sharpie Liquid Pencil. It’s kind of like an erasable pen, except I’ve had moments of ‘oh crap’ when I’m drawing and wipe my hand across the paper and the ‘ink’ comes up. (this usually only opens with a medium amount of pressure, which is a bit more then I should be applying when I wipe away the eraser bits, but I tend to be a little rough on my sketchbook, oh well). Over that I applied some Sharpie pen, because I wanted some really dark outlines. The blues are a couple of different oil pastels applied in a circle motion. Super fun! I love how this piece turned out.
