Holiday sketching in the North Yorkshire Moors, working with a sketchbook that isn’t taking watercolour paints as expected!
I like to use my illustrated recipes to experiment with layouts, hand lettering and new techniques. When I read about Penelope Dullaghan’s oil transfer technique, I decided it was time for a new illustrated recipe and an experiment.
My drawings from a mini adventure – Sketching in Uppermill in bright but freezing weather.
When I’ve tried drawing animal characters, I never been happy with the results. So my recipes have stayed clear of animals. Here’s how a hen, a reindeer and a family of rabbits have crept in!
I love watercolours. Yet when I draw on location, I often need to put down values and colours fast and I find I don’t always have time for watercolours.
