more watercolours

i'm working with watercolour pencils at the moment, primarily motivated by fear, as they're more controllable and more forgiving.

  1. Thanks Juan. I'd argue with you normally, but today I'll just accept the compliment. Checked out your site and weird thing is you have the kind of style I aspired to when I was younger. You have a great brushline.

  2. Ha ha ha ha, Why argue? There is no doubt about the gracefully of your pencil and also the nice simplicity in the use of the colour.

    Those birds are so cool!

  3. Having followed your work over the past year or so Andrew I take this as an enormous compliment so thanks.

  4. My drawing ability is limited to lines and boxes (I do a mean parking diagram), so I'm amazed by - and appreciative of - people who can render actual beauty from actual life on paper. It still seems like magic to me when it works, which your bird drawings most definitely do. Thanks for sharing your talent.

  5. Hi Colin, thanks for dropping by and the kind words. I think it's a trade off when it comes to talents. I checked out your blog and I couldn't turn a phrase as well as you do, so what you gain in one area you lose in another.
