Edna

A sketch in three stages. The original line drawing, above, I made at our most recent Dr Sketchy Sheffield event featuring Burlesque dance troupe The Yorkshire Puddings.
In the second stage I added a little shading, in the form of cross hatching, and some stronger lines.
Then finally with colour - for which I used colour pencil. Maybe I shouldn't have bothered. I think I like the original line drawing the best. Oh well.

Brilliant sketch and love, I like the touch of colour and love the sound of the Yorkshire Puddings

That is a really nice process you do. I also sketch, I can share a few of mine with ya.

I love the coloured one, it looks kind of like one of those drawings from the forties or fifties :-)
