For Christmas, I bought myself a new water colour set. It’s been a long time since I used any water colours, though I still have the ones I used as a teenager and student. That’s not to say I haven’t done any water colour style artwork, I generally use acrylic paint in a wash style or my inks.
Anyway, I treated myself to a 48 half pan set by Winsor and Newton. I decided to do a small A5 piece first and keep it simple. I took my inspiration from traditional Japanese Cloisonne work, and created a stencil style flowers design. I really, really enjoyed doing this piece. So, to that end I have stepped up and ordered myself the significantly more expensive 24 half pans Schmincke Aquarell Watercolour Set. (which hasn’t arrived yet…grrrrr). So, here it is finished. This is photographed (not that well, poor light), not scanned and I am also including some step through shots as well.
