These wonderful doodlewashes come from the sketchbook of Pascal Drai (follow him on Pinterest!) in Paris, France. Pascal is married with two kids, and works in advertising for a horse racing company, but has a passion for sketching what he sees.
Pascal says, “sketching and drawing and painting watercolors is just a hobby for me… a way to escape and get out of everyday life during a drawing.” (And your wonderful sketches provide a nice escape for us as well, Pascal! Thanks for sharing!)
He prefers to draw with permanent ink, a Rotring pen, and watercolors. He says, “I’m demanding… no right to change! The line is good or bad!” (love the idea of just going for it and letting the lines do what they will!)
His sketches are spontaneous and wonderful, providing glimpses of everyday life as well as the locations he visits. His loose sketching style provides an immediacy to his doodlewashes that is so enthralling. He posts most of his sketches on Pinterest, so definitely check out the rest there and follow his boards!
