Watercolour Sketchbook

I had intended to post one of these pictures last week but the week just flew by and before I knew it I was eating chocolate and drawing an Easter rabbit so it is a bit of a ‘buy one get one free’ blog post today!

As always, when the kids are on school holidays the jewellery making comes to a standstill and the paints come out. My first drawing was intended to get me more used to my lovely Albrect Durer watercolour pencils. I began by laying down my pencil drawing (only lightly colouring the petals) and then running a damp paintbrush over the top. Once dried I went back over with the same colour pencils to add details.

The second painting was the Easter rabbit that seems to have become a little tradition of mine. Like last years drawing I have opted for rabbit in flowers again because, you know, Spring and all that!

This chap was super hard to photograph as I deliberately kept his colours light and airy but it does mean that he doesn’t show well in any of the photos I took. Mr Bunny was painted with my pan watercolours and a little added details with Polychromo pencils.

I am back to the jewellery making this week (kids are back in school!!!) so there should be more jewellery soon.

  1. Those are lovely! Drawing is not my thing so I am in awe of people who can. The soft colours really suit the subjects.
