Yesterday was a chilly, blowy day but that did not stop me going down to the river and the old mill area to do some plein air observational sketching.
With each trip I am learning what I prefer to use with this type of sketching expedition. I am finding I am not keen on using my Aqua Flo brushes with my watercolours. They are great when used with my watercolour pencils but I am finding I do not have the same mark making and tonal control that I am used to with my normal watercolour brushes. I am also finding I am getting rather addicted to my black Fineliner Staedtler pens. They glide across the paper so easily and it is quite fun making all those fast squiggly marks.
