I have been doing lots of watercolour and ink sketches of buildings recently.
Over the last couple of months, I have been doing little watercolour and pen sketches in various sketchbooks based around different themes. They really help me to start my day as I tend to do them in the morning. My go to watercolours is the “Sakura Koi Watercolors Pocket Field Sketch Box” and my favourite pens (at the moment, because I’m a fickle little bunny) are Sakura Pigma Microns (and no, I’m not affiliated to Sakura in any way).
It’s been a while since I’ve done a blog post, mostly because I have been rather obsessed with painting watercolours. In the past I have been a little scared of watercolour paints, because they can be unpredictable and it can be difficult to correct mistakes. However, I love the look of watercolours, especially with pen or ink, and I’ve been inspired by Alisa Burke who runs an online watercolour class.
I have never seen myself as an artist in the traditional sense of the word, but I have always enjoyed playing around with pens and paint, especially at school and then when my children were small. Although I’ve never really stopped making things, since last Christmas, I have increasingly been incorporating some form of “artwork” into my daily life.
