Bugs

In this Sketchbook Club module we will be creating a beautiful spread of bugs and butterflies. Using the reference to trace or copy, we will be introducing a brilliant technique using tissue paper as the base colour and adding detail with a fine liner pen. You may wish to add further detail or colour using paints and pencils.

This spread is quite time consuming, so take your time and enjoy the process, it will be so worth it when you have finished, I promise you will be delighted with the end result!

What you get:

  • Instructions – Detailed instructions from start to finish along with the tips, techniques & clever tricks.
  • Reference – Handpicked (printable) reference material to inspire and assist.
  • Video – A video showing you each of the steps.
  • Community – Details of the social media hashtag to use for the module.

We have spent all week drawing bugs, it's been fun. These were made using tissue paper and a black fine liner with a couple colour pencils for detail. It was nice trying a different technique with the tissue paper, but I think I will make a second page using watercolours of some kind perhaps. #kellyfairysketchbook #sketchbookclub jenniemaizels #myweekend

Bugs page for sketchbookclub done! Really enjoyed making this spread - the techniques are all coming back to me from my art school days! I thought it would be appropriate to photograph it in front of my bug hotel (in which all rooms currently appear to be vacant!).
