*Watercolour, ink pen, with colour pencil. I drew this on a A6, piece of 200gsm Reeves, “responsibly sourced”, acid free drawing paper. This has a lovely surface for both wet and dry art media, and compares well with some of the other more expensive brands I use.
Most of these sketches were inspired by walks in our local bushland area, and every day scenes at home. I took photos for reference, but mostly I drew them from memory and imagination.
I’m quickly filling up in my tiny handmade sketchbooks, and have worked in these smaller sizes frequently over the years. I share more about them here. They are a handy way to keep up my drawing/watercolour practice; and to experiment further on a variety of paper surfaces.
I unearthed two tiny watercolours of mine recently. A bit of disrepair is visible, (see below) as they’ve travelled around my home in various places, for about 20 years. The coloured pencil drawing (with water soluble coloured pencil) is new.
