I’ve been reading ‘Urban Watercolor Sketching’ by Felix Scheinberger (here’s Tina’s review). It’s not very ‘urban’, but I recommend it as an enthusiastic, conversational and practical guide to water-colour sketching, with a strong focus on the power of colour. So I’m trying to be a bit bolder with the paint, letting colour do more of the work, with the drawn lines playing a supporting role. Here’s a collection of strange fruit, oranges, bananas, apples and a lemon, all drawn very fast, hence the oddly shaped bananas and wonky cake stand!
Platinum sepia pigment ink and Lexington grey in fountain pen, watercolour, A6 – about 15 minutes each
Like it, Ed!
