Fujifilm X-E2 in brush pen

My Fujifilm X-E2

I realised that whilst I can draw really (adequately) well with a pen or a pencil, my brush technique needed a bit of working on. So I’ve been trying to practice drawing with brushes to improve this. So far it’s not having noticeable effects but I will keep on at it to see if I improve. However this brush pen drawing of my camera is promising, so maybe there is hope for me yet. My biggest takeaway from the whole exercise is to use as big a brush as you possibly can.

Rear view of Honda C90

Painted from a photo in gouache in the “Ice” sketchbook.

Using only three colours. A yellow, a red and neutral tint which is a grey.

First drew the outline using a red watercolour pencil, then started blocking in using the yellow gouache. Then used the neutral tint + some of the yellow for the background colour. The leg guard is done with a wash of neutral tint, and I used the red for the tail light. I aso mixed up the orange you see on the indicators. I mixed red with neutral tint to get a darker colour for the tyres.
