I began this painting with a brown watersoluble “Neocolor” crayon, applied with a flourish (and without much of a plan) onto A4 cotton watercolour paper. Then added watercolour and gouache. I used a tiny bit of coloured pencil here and there. The paper texture was a little rougher than I usually like to use for... Continue Reading →
For this quick sketch I used a dark sepia inkpen, and added washes of “natural brown” Inktense ink. It’s on A5 watercolour paper. I snapped a photo of the line drawing before adding the washes on paper. Thought I’d firstly add some brown “gesinski” ink washes on it in the “Procreate” app to see what... Continue Reading →

Explorations – Watercolour, Pencil, iPad drawings, Art Prints….
Inkpen and graphite pencil in one of my sketchbooks. This is an inkjet print I did of it, on Canson 220 drawing paper. A gallery of works further along. Over the years, I’ve continually tacked up my artworks: sketches, poems, watercolours... usually in the kitchen. As a mum of four boys (young men now) this... Continue Reading →
