Top Sketchbook Tips


If you want to start adding watercolour to any line work you are doing in your sketchbook, then you will need one with a decent quality paper. I enjoy using the “little black book” now branded by moleskine favoured by artists like Henri Matisse and Vincent Van Gogh.Sketchbook study of winter tree

Sketchbook study of Winter Tree

You can get one with a stiff cartridge paper which is slightly tinted that can take watercolour without buckling and they (moleskine) now do a sketchbook with watercolour paper in. The study above of a tree in winter was drawn on the spot whilst I was out walking my German Shepherd dog using a pen with waterproof ink. The colour was added from memory in the studio. This may well end up as a larger watercolor.
