Norfolk Pages

Here are the pages I started when away in Norfolk.  A brilliant addition to my tool kit has been a reservoir brush (also called a waterbrush).  This means I can do water colours sitting in an arm chair! A perfect companion to my ancient watercolour box which was my Dad's. The brush will clean with a few wipes on a paper towel so is ready for a new colour. No good for sweeping washes, but perfect for what I wanted.

I painted the shell whilst away, but added the photo montage and tracing paper seaweed back home.

Freehand copy of Cromer church window (photograph) done with the reservoir brush - not sure how I will develop this yet.  I have to give credit to my Design Matters Creative Sketchbook course for inspiring me with the cut out and adding a page.
