There are a few car sketches left to receive this treatment and then I'll need to find some more subjects to skribble.

The Best of this Years Event Sketches

A lot of people ask me at shows what I do with my sketches. Mostly the sketches are done to further my knowledge of various cars and bikes by being able to sketch from real life. I learn a lot more by sketching from an actual car or bike than a photograph. Until now these sketches have just stayed in the sketchbook. After a review of this years sketchbooks I decided to chose the sketches that I think work well and take them a bit further. To save ruining the original sketch I scanned the sketchbook pages and then painted over them in Photoshop . To give an example here is a before and after of the process.

Here are the rest of the paints from today.

I'm definitely going to be doing more of these and possibly produce some prints from the best ones, so if you are taken by one in particular let me know.
