    Bought some acrylic paints. They are so much easier to work with!

    Work in progress:

    Watercolour.

    I've always found the lack of control with watercolour really difficult. I know you're supposed to paint more freely with it, but it's just so difficult not to fuck it up and turn your colour into a muddy pool!

    Yeah watercolour is really hard to control but the upside is that its really easy to blend with as the water sort of does it by itself..
    Take a look at Laovaan's work here


    and Bao Pham's work here

    That sir is a seriously cool website. :thumbs: It even mentions a book I read years ago, 'Footfall', about an alien invasion and I was glad to see it given a rave review.

    The only doodles I've done lately have been quite meditative calming ones. I like getting lost in the details, the motion and the sound of the sweeping ink. Unfinished- 20171008_204442.jpg

    Still Work in progress... Added more layers.

    Also forgot to stick the paper down so now it's starting to warp. Lesson learnt.

    Went for a lovely walk with some mates in Ojców National Park (near Kraków).

    The colours were putting on a show. There was a lovely moment when said mates were walking ahead of me past a ploughed field towards a forest with all the leaves shimmering in the sunlight. So I took a picture, then painted it..

    Poland has some spectacular leaf shows this time of year!

    As with all my painting "it's not finished yet".

    What did you use to colour it in? Did you do the design first or make it up as you went along? And how big is it?

    Sorry for hounding you with questions :D I just really like it & want to do something similar

    It's really small...less than half an a4 sheet. I used staedtler? Fine liner to draw the design and then sharpies to carefully colour in. It would have been easier with finer felt tips but I love the way sharpies spread to the borders. I made it up as I went along yeah.

    Stanley Edwards Food please.

    Still using a shitty webcam, but my first Lisbon sketch to be posted here. It is a fabulous city for architectural studies. I am getting hooked on the neoclassical sculpture relief things. This is the old town hall - my favourite of the older buildings here. It isn't public access (I think you can make an appointment for a Sunday morning guided tour at certain times of the year), but I have made a sketch for the caretaker who steals the town clerks paper for me. It is fucking well amazing inside, and should, by all rights be public access. Anyway...

    I will try and do a better photo, or remember where I left my Samsung smartphone charging. I think it was a long way from here. Possibly Huelva :confused:

    Tried another in B&W today thinking my laptop camera would like it better. Marginally so. Need a camera urgently.
