The thoughts and works of a caffeine addicted artist!

I had a page of started and unfinished studies of Harry in my large Canson sketchbook, ones I'd began only to find he'd vanished when I looked up again. So, I slapped a thin coat of gesso over the lot, some remained visible others, like Harry...Vanished! I coloured the base with gouache once dry, then set about trying to capture Harry without him knowing again. I was quicker this time and managed three half decent studies throughout the day. Finally, I added a little watercolour to emphasise my new studies, resulting in a far more interesting page than I'd started with!
