Prismacolors, Koh-i-Noors, over original graphite outline.

Celtic circle sketch by Gary Franceschini

Scanner darkened the image considerably. I lightened it in PS first, but it’s still darker than it should be.

Bits and pieces

Some pen sketches, some pencil sketches, a Celtic circle. The sketch of Les is from the Nick Meglin drawing class, as are the pen sketches of my hand.

The Celtic circle was drawn thusly; 1. Use a ruler to draw the center line. 2. mark the line at 2 inches, then at 1/4″ going out. 3. Draw the circles. 4. Use a protractor to mark off 10 second arc intervals. 5. Draw the braids freehand. 6. Erase what you don’t want.
