Experimenting with watercolor pencils, and an attempted foray into botanical illustration. I've always loved botanical illustrations, and I have this lovely set of watercolor pencils that need more playing with, and an even lovelier pot full of nasturtiums outside my front door. Last year, my friend gave me the pencil set, as well as a large watercolor moleskin, and it was really too nice to just use for scribbles and sketches. So, a year later I have finally found a use for it. I'll be doing more of these hopefully. After all, I have a whole book to fill up now.
A quicker sketch I did earlier that day, which was what prompted the more finished drawing above. I couldn't resist revisiting those bright golds and oranges and the patterns.
