A Little Peek

A little peak at my new for 2017 sketch book.

This one, that I bought, just to muck around in, has paper with a fair bit of tooth so I decided to see if it would take water colour. 

I haven't worked with water colours in years! So this little experiment was more or less a refresher for me. Laying down some water first helps to guide the colour. I've always loved Paynes Grey and Burnt Sienna. 

I'll show you what I did with the cardinal (peeking 'round the corner) tomorrow...


  1. So pretty and fresh Barbara! You've given me inspiration to break out the old sketch book this morning :)
