*Watercolour, green and brown pigment inkpen, and a little white gouache. A page from my A5 Winsor&Newton sketchbook, which has 300gsm 100% cotton paper - lovely paper! Although it doesn’t say on the packaging that it’s “cold pressed” paper, I gather it is by it’s light texture. It works quite well with coloured pencil and graphite... Continue Reading →

As is usual I’ve drawn quite a lot this past month...and to help a share a few of them here, I’ve again used the Pic Collage app to... Continue Reading →
