By no means do I consider myself a painter or illustrator, I simply enjoy playing around with watercolours and sketching, as well as creating little elements for designs occasionally. I came across The Sketchbook Project last year and knew I wanted to get involved this year, and it would be a good opportunity to experiment with the new Peerless Transparent Watercolours I bought recently.
The colours of the tube based watercolours I had been using seemed much too dull, especially after scanning the artwork. The Peerless set have the most vibrant colours, and because there are so many colour chips I don’t need to worry about mixing any together to create something quickly. They really are super vibrant!
So I decided that for the project I’d focus on florals and nature inspired imagery, I’ll need to do at least one or two a week to get the sketchbook finished and sent back in time. Here’s the first two entries.
