More trees

Trees. Pen and watercolour pencil

A few more sketches from my local walking excursions. This time I grabbed a mixed bunch of watercolour pencils, some Prismalos, Faber Castells and Derwent Inktense

This sapling was in a fairly exposed spot so I didn't draw for very long!


Woodland. Pen and gouache.
This week I have taken several walks between Histon and Girton, where there are numerous footpaths through fields and newly planted woodland. I have been trying out a set of Caran D'ache Fancolor gouache paints (which I intend to do a review of at some point). I think they are really childrens paints but I wanted a set of gouache pans to take out and about as an alternative to watercolours. I also took a handful of Neocolour 2 pastels and some tube paints as I wasn't sure how strong the pans would be.
