Another Sktchy portrait

It's been a while since I've done a Sktchy portrait but the urge took me this morning so I dived right in and chose a 'victim' from the tons of reference images available. I love Sktchy!  It's only available for IOS but it's a great tool for artists. It's basically a library of reference images, mostly people pics, that are uploaded by other artists. Artists painting other artists — too cool!

I sketched Marissa directly in pen, then added some watercolours trying to be loose and messy.


Linking up with Paint Party Friday again this week. To see the work or other PPF participants, click HERE.

I hope you all have a beautiful and fun weekend.

  2. I just love this idea Serena! When ever I have tried sketching from reference photo's, I have typed 'faces' in to google and it is so frustrating, because usually the faces have been airbrushed so mich that there is no detail! I'll definitely check this site out! Your sketch is fabulous by the way! Love it :0)

    1. Thanks, Sandra! Yes, do check out the app. It's a great way for artists to connect with and encourage one another. You might feel a little lost when you first sign up but, if I can pick it up, anyone can. hehe A red hot tip - when you are looking at an artist's piece of art on Sktchy, slide from left to right, and you will see the reference image they used. Such a cool feature. :)

    1. Thanks. I wish they did it for Android too as I have a Samsung phone...I'm just lucky to have an iPad. I did hear talk of them developing it for Android but that was ages ago and, so far, nothing. :(
