These are the new watercolour paints I got for my birthday from my cousin Chris - I was playing around with them during the heat wave. I am trying to get back to observational drawing this summer as I don't want to neglect it. Here's my feeble attempt to paint some logs:
Chris is an illustrator too. He does very beautiful watercolours of wildlife, and has gone all the way to Peru to paint from first hand observation. Mine look so sucky next to his! Watercolour is easily the most challenging media for me.
