Flatlay / Tools & materials
Day 3/4 of #marchmeetthemaker.
These are the tools and materials I may use when drawing/painting on location.
During last year’s #urbansketchers symposium in Portugal, I received two excellent pieces of advice: Pedro Alves (@dk_limp on Instagram) suggested using two sketchbooks, one good quality watercolor book and a simpler one for practice, while Jane Blundell (@janeblundellart) advised using two water containers, one for rinsing/cleaning the brush and one to mix with fresh paint. I’m looking forward to learning more during the upcoming @usksymposium in Amsterdam!

Inspired to have something or someone dear to you captured in the form of a painting or drawing? I work both from photographs and from life. Click here for more information, or send me an email – I would love to explore the possibilities with you!
