My first time live sketching at the beach with my portable kit. I've been building it up the last few weeks and decided it was time I took it for a spin.

I'm really happy with the end result.

  • A quick pencil underdrawing

  • Then a Sakura Pigma pen sketch for shadows and contours

  • And a Koi Brush pen bit of colour added, I use the pen ink as "watercolour" paint.

I'm learning that watercolour really is about doing less, and sketching to is about what you leave out just as much what you put in.
