Two things I love…
100210 Two things I love
A finished sketchbook and one that I have just started (notice the wavy single page!)
100210 Vanbrugh Castle 01
Over the next couple of days there will be a few versions of this image as I plan(there is that word again) to try different techniques within different time frames.

#1 This is a 5 minute sketch (ink AND watercolour in 5 min) using my pentel pocket brush pen – this is really the best approach for a super quick sketch … I just can’t use it slowly.

Just for the record the watercolour took another 5 minutes to dry! (
BTW I went somewhat crazy with my title page – palette with paper which still needs some more work – but you can see two bits on this spread folded over the edge.)

#2 This is another 5 minute sketch as per #1 but using my mega pencil instead. This is fun!

BTW an exciting post about me here

    Wow what a comparison. One full of stuff, the other ready and waiting for a fresh new year!

    Good luck and I look forward to seeing the results over the coming months!
