Inside my sketchbook - Ribbons.




I haven't really done a post like this before but I thought it might be nice to show you something I've been drawing in my new sketchbook/notebook. I actually really enjoy working on lined paper just for something a little different, and it adds a little more texture to the illustration. I only really work in watercolours when I'm painting for fun, as I usually prefer to work digitally but it's all good practice. Let me know if you would be interested in seeing more posts like this in the future! 

This illustration was inspired by the first episode of Da Vinci's Demons (the scene where Vanessa is dancing around in the meadow with lots of ribbons tied in her hair).
