As promised, the 'wet' version of my wild flowers sketch. As you can hopefully see, the inks come alive with water and even maintain their brightness after drying.
Pocket moleskin, Staedtler pigment liner, inktense pencils.
I'm quite surprised...
I had thought the darker blue/purple background against the white of the daisies and the orange of the poppies would be the most eye catching combination but, for me, it's the aqua combination that catches my eye most
...one of the reasons my sketchbooks are becoming invaluable to me.
Here is another wild flower sketch I did this evening from memory:
Pocket moleskin, Staedtler pigment liner, verithin coloured pencil 'orange'
My first double spread in a moleskin!
I have to say I am really enjoying the sketchbook moleskins. I had thought the smaller one would be difficult to work with due to it's size but I have had such fun in it with these wild flower studies.
