Welcome to my website

I always start to work on a character by sketching in charcoal on plain white paper.

I'll then start doing a few little character sketches in colour.

I love to use bold, vibrant colours as I find them very expressive when trying to show the emotion a character might be feeling.

The pastels I use are mostly a very soft type of pastel which are applied to a type of grainy pastel card or a more chalky type of pastel which are applied with fingers to  pastel paper. I then add some tiny dots for eyes and details using  pastel pencils or watercolour.
