This was a really fun commission to do! My client had a great idea for this piece and I just put it together.

Polychromos and Luminance coloured pencils over Sennelier watercolors on Arches Hot Pressed 300gsm watercolour paper. 8×10 inches.

I’m learning so much about watercolours and how they work and I can honestly say I love using them now! Never thought I’d hear myself say that, lol! Never say never, I guess. 😉

This is why it’s so important to try new things once in a while. Step out of your comfort zone and try that new thing you’ve been thinking about – you might surprise yourself and absolutely love it!

I don’t have a large amount of pans yet, but I’m more than happy with the ones I do have – there are some really pretty colours and with them I can create a large range of colour and tones.

Watercolous are so different to acrylics and oils, but they’re well worth taking the time to learn. I’ve yet to complete an artwork using solely watercolours, but I might sometime.


I must admit, it’s nice knowing I can rely on coloured pencils for fine details in these artworks.

Have a wonderful and creative week!
