Scenes from Morocco

Category: Other Art, Sketchbook  Comments off



It took me a few days to do this double page spread in my A4 Fabriano Sketchbook. It is very much a mixed media, with the initial drawing done using my TWSBI EF nib fountain pen with deatrimentas document ink, then Watercolour, Watercolour marker pens, other Marker pens, Pitt Artist Pens and Gel pens!
I have never been to Morocco, although my sister Adele Flood has, she is a brilliant artist, and she produced a most wonderful collection of paintings and drawings from her stay there – culminating in a successful Exhibition a couple of years ago! ❤️?
I did not originally intend to portray Morocco, but I was drawn to the colours and scenes and found some very nice photos on Pixabay which I used as reference photos for my sketchbook work. I love using sketchbooks and have seen so many great ones in groups online that always inspire me to try and do more! Thank you for looking ???✒️✏️

Copic Competition Entry

“Ms. Charlie Chaplin”
Done entirely in Copic Markers, Copic Multiliner and Copic Opaque White. This is a medium I really love – Ink has always been a favourite, and I really enjoyed this subject as well.

‘This was for a competition, which I saw promoted on the Eckersleys website.  The idea was to make a work of art, using only Copic, and then post it on Instagram. The idea of winning a complete range of comic pens etc. was incredibly tempting (like over $4,000 worth!) and although I am not very confident of winning (there are MANY wonderful artists around), it was still worth having a go!
