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 →
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.

Occasionally I’ve drawn portraits for people, but these days I prefer to mostly draw faces from memory (not of anyone... Continue Reading →

We’re heading into our long, and often very hot Summer here in Australia. Thankful for wonderful year of family life; and time... Continue Reading →
Began with a charcoal drawing, then: watercolour (a little gouache) and Inktense ink block washes, mat acrylic medium, white acrylic paint… In these last stages I’m adding layers of gloss acrylic medium mixed with watercolours/ink to intensify colours… It’s on a watercolour canvas (8” x 10”) but I’ve found most canvases work well with this...
