Sketch the Rainbow

Kate Marsden

Now you know how I like a good Instagram challenge… I do often avoid the ones which are really time consuming though as I struggle to complete them, but in January I tend to have more time (although my month has been unexpectedly and pleasantly busy this year!). So add a sketching/sketchbook challenge to the January mix and I’m there. What better to make me fill some more pages in a new book?

I discovered the #sketchtherainbow challenge organised by the rather awesome Sketch Appeal (check out their magazine it’s fab) and decided I needed to give it a go. I was a little concerned about sharing my work alongside rather more talented illustrators, but everyone seems to be lovely and supportive so it was great fun!

Here are my 14 days worth of posts (not necessarily in the right order), now to keep this up for the rest of the year!!

Week 2, day 1 - draw  this Claire Prouvost illustration  in your style and only in red and blue (and in my case giving myself a Sharpie fume headache in the process!!).
