Earlier this month I received a wonderful book The Tao of Sketching by Qu Lei Lei. It’s really hard to find but anyone interested can see a limited preview on Google Books. It’s primarily about Chinese Sketching/Painting Techniques which I am very interested in but it also has great general sketching ideas – I really like the section on types of sketches you can do in a limited amount of time.
The sketch below is some simple flowers in a vase. It was completed in about 15 minutes with my Pitt markers. I actually did this a few months ago but it fit the principles in my new book so I’d thought I’d share it.
I also received another book on Chinese Brush Painting by the wonderfully talented Nan Rae but more about this soon :)
