Watercolours

Sennelier watercolours

I have these in Pans and Tubes, I mostly use the tube paints and have started to use a sealed pallette into which I can squeeeze tube paint. This will stay fresh for some time as the pallette is airtight.

This fantasy of cog wheels was drawn with a thick calligraphy nib in waterproof indian ink before I added the watercolours.

Cog Wheels

This landscape is bit inaccurate: I moved the silver birch from our garden to the field and changed our wild flower meadow into a poppy field; the fields are also a variation on reality. However, the painting was fun to do.

These poppies were drawn with a general purpose dip pen nib in waterproof indian ink and the colored with sennelier watercolours.

Hibiscus

The green background was done rather like a lino cut, using thick green watercolour on a stencil that I cut from my drawing. I then painted the petals through the cut.
