I bought a Winsor and Newton Field Box on ebay from England. This is my first painting with them. Lovely yellow nectarines, but the weather was so hot the day I drew the cut one that it was really withered and half cooked by the time I’d finished. Winsor and Newton watercolours on BFK Rives paper. Heading courtesy of the Calligrafun class.
I have not done much drawing this week because I have been making books – a new Fabriano Hot sketchbook for myself, and an experimental sketchbook that I’ll show you when it is finished. I’ve done so much cutting that I’ve wrecked my hand and my back isn’t in great shape from all the bending, so this week I’ll be back to drawing.
I did a search on yoube for sketchbook and found this wonderful series of sketchbooks from the New York School of Visual Arts. I’ve been to two art schools but never seen sketchbooks like this. He must be a great teacher. Look here!
