We have recently returned from a week on the beautiful island of Santorini. This was our first visit and it will not be our last. I was determined to do some sort of artwork on the holiday and to that end I packed some watercolour pencils and some water brushes, these are synthetic brushes with a built in water reservoir. I have never used this kit before so the experience was a bit of an experiment. The pencils were fine, but I found that I couldn’t get the intensity of colour I can with watercolour tube paints. However I did enjoy the experience and the relaxed experience of painting in the sun. My main problem with this was the water dried on the paper almost as soon as it touched it!
My best two images are shown here and as ever, thanks for looking.
