And what better way to start with the sketch I did of my art kit. All went to plan with what I took although I did take the wrong blue watercolour pencil (Cobalt rather than Ultramarine) which annoyed me a little.
I ended up at one stage with 7 fountain pens in my page And my spare pans where not prepared long enough in advance and I had a bit of a disaster. Wasn’t a big deal as i never actually needed them – the paint in my kit was enough to get me through with only one colour (MA Natural Sienna) that I needed to replace.
I don’t actually enjoy sketching during my long haul flights – but I do it to fill in a little time and to get me in the mood for sketching for the whole trip. It is the desire to record every part of my adventure that pushes me through the uninteresting nature of sketching plane interiors.
and then I had to record the spare two seats next to me (of course I only had one of these seats as the man on the other end of the row used the other one) One of the rare times when I use a waterbrush… and as always regret it.
Ok…next post will start to get more interesting!
