A few weeks ago I started using GoldFaber Aqua Dual Markers (prompted by the exercises from Lesson 1 of my Watercolour On Location course). I was particularly enjoying the wild vibrancy of the Blue Violet colour.
But for the last week or so I’ve changed my fad colour to Lavender Light 196. I’m using it in all kinds of ways…
Here is the full spread which also includes my current favourite GoldFaber Aqua colours and a sketch of a Channel-Billed Cuckoo (copied from a bird book). These extremely noisy birds are a big part of my life at the moment.
There are some really fun textures (especially in the top layer of the trees) where my usual granulating watercolour washes mixed with the dye-based marker marks.
Finally… here are a few sketches that I’ve shared previously. Can you spot the Lavender in them? Did you notice it when you first saw them?
