There’s much I’m investigating and experimenting with lately. Lots of mixed media work on paper, and little on canvas, and in between it all some work on the iPad - good fun! It’s wonderful to have some work on the go, and ideas percolating, awaiting a brush or pen. And so exciting when they get... Continue Reading →

Watercolour, Inktense block colour, graphite pencil, on Strathmore 300gsm 5” x 7” watercolour paper. For the underlying drawing I used a brush that I continually swished over a black Derwent Inktense block. I so enjoy the vivid colours of the Inktense pencils I use, that I recently purchased a set of 12 Inktense blocks, with... Continue Reading →
