Firstly a quick flourish of my inkpen, then washes of watercolour and a touch of white gouache in the centre of the flower. A page from one of my homemade sketchbooks. A page is A6 (approx. 4” x 6”, 10cm x 15cm) in size.
*These are both in acrylic: the top is on a 8” x 10” canvas, and the bottom is 4” x 6” canvas. For a few months now I’ve continued to revisit painting with acrylics - with many a muddy mess along the way - and I’m still mainly pursuing landscapes in a tonalist style. I’m at... Continue Reading →
