Watercolour & ink
Today my new sofa arrived. All plump and springy, it slotted into it's new home like it had never lived anywhere else.
Yesterday the set of 15 Neocolor ll wax pastels I ordered arrived along with a mini sized Canson journal, I love the look of the Canson journals with their bright red covers and black corners and have really enjoyed using my current, larger sized one.
I plan to keep the mini journal in my handbag for cafe sketches, the size should prove alot easier to whip out on unsuspecting 'models'.
The Neocolor pastels are gorgeous! Such vivid, strong pigments and their crayon like appearance made me feel like a child using them, I can't wait to work on something a little larger than today's sketch so I can get really playful. The smallest drop of water and they come alive, I imagine they will prove to be a VERY useful piece of location kit.
