Sketching and taking notes
This is the first page of my sketch “book”. It is not a book, but a collection of sheets of paper with sketches and notes. As you can see in the scan above, I did some sketches of flowers and leaves and added the colour of the pencils I used.
Throughout these sketches I used the technique of putting pigment off my pencils with a wet brush. I am still learning how to do it – how much water to put on the brush, how to take off some water off the brush by dipping it on a paper towel.
