*Watercolour, ink pen, with colour pencil. I drew this on a A6, piece of 200gsm Reeves, “responsibly sourced”, acid free drawing paper.

I’ve also printed this mixed media drawing in pigment ink, with my inkjet printer, on A3 Canson 220gsm paper; and applied some coloured pencil to it. I thoroughly enjoyed Inktober, and the opportunity to use lots of line work -... Continue Reading →
