Materials: Jinhao 992 fountain pen with Lotte flavour SketchINK, my new Winsor and Newton Professional Watercolours (i’ll get around to swatching these soon), and a Pink Pig 270 gsm hot press watercolour book. After the last picture i went and bought a Cotman 13mm flat brush, and i also used a number 2 round.
Plan: To do another of Peter’s enjoyable paint along tutorials which you can find by clicking here, and get to play with my new 13mm flat brush.
Learned: The flat brush is very nice and i really enjoyed painting with it. The Cobalt Blue Deep is very granulating, that sky, whoops. I bought this colour just because i was curious, well, my curiosity has been served. Not sure what i shall be doing with this colour in the future, but painting skies on hot press paper doesn’t appear to be one of its good points…
Soooo: …back to French Ultramarine for skies then.
Next: As i’m really enjoying doing these tutorials i’m gonna keep on doing them as they’re good drawing practice and challenging plenty enough for me to be learning about my paints.
I forgot to take a pic of the drawing before i painted it.
Back soon with another picture.
