I drew this with a black inkpen and watersoluble graphite crayon on paper. With my iPad I took a snap of it, then sent it to my inkjet printer. I printed it (with the printer also set to black and white) onto “rough” A5 cotton watercolour paper.   It was fun working/playing over it with watercolour... Continue Reading →

I wasn’t sure where I was going with this - there’s photos of the beginnings below. Though... Continue Reading →

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 →

*Painted with acrylics and Inktense ink mixed with acrylic mediums, on 11” x 14” (about 27cm x 35cm) canvases. I painted with lots of thin glazes - a technique which I commonly used years ago. These two are not all together successful, but some aspects of catching the light effects are passable. I’m keen to... Continue Reading →
