There is a bench in Madrid’s Retiro park that sits just across a path from the one I drew above – a lady writing a letter, her dog waiting quietly in the 40 degree shade. I drew the other end of the same bench, from the same spot, some time ago…
In my continued mission to become an Urban Sketcher, I thought I’d start adding some watercolour to my drawings, starting at home before venturing into the field!
Here are the first experiments:
There is of course a ton of useful info on-line about how to start doing all this, but I particularly liked this post, How I Sketch: Part Two, Demonstration, despite being obsessed, as a typical beginner, with all the nice things I can buy in her previous post, How I Sketch: Part One, Materials.
All the above sketches were made with a Pigma Micron Pen, a Cotman watercolour travel kit, and a Pentel waterbrush, which is a most fantastic invention!
