If you don’t already know, I normally start a new sketchbook by documenting my palette (and/or my sketching kit). I’ve been doing this since 2009 and even have a tag “Title Page‘ if you want to explore more. Not only does this habit take away the dilemma of what to put on the first page of a new book but the title page becomes a very useful record of what I was doing at the time.
On Monday I finally got around to doing the title page for my current sketchbook – Volume 167 of my everyday books (I have 100+ travel sketchbooks as well)
Hmm… It’s becoming a bigger job to document my colours!
I know, I know, I’m carrying way too much stuff at the moment… but it’s just so hard to limit my selection of pencils and markers.
So this page documents my crazy selections at this time including:
- 20 different watercolour paints as described in detail here
- lots of coloured pencils – Derwent Colorsoft, Faber Castell Polychromos, Bruynzeel Design and Caran d’ache Luminance
- lots of watercolour pencils – Faber Castell Albrecht Durer, Bruynzeel Design and Caran d’ache Museum
- a few Tombows
- 26 Faber Castell GoldFaber Aqua dual markers.
My goal for the coming weeks is somehow to reduce this collection!
And just for the record, I don’t carry all of this around all of the time. 🙂
