I want to work more in my sketchbooks this year and found this partially used mixed media sketchbook when I was unpacking a few of my art supplies. The paper isn’t the best, but it will take watercolor and marker without bleeding through, so I’ll use it to do some doodling and designs.
I sketched sections of this design in pencil using HB lead in a Staedtler lead holder. LOVE my Staedtler lead holders. I keep HB lead in one and 2B lead in the other.
With the sketch finished, Winsor & Newton pan watercolors were used to lay in the color. This is my favorite watercolor palette, the Martin Mijello airtight palette.
The watercolors were allowed to dry, then Pigma Micron markers in sizes 05 and 1 were used to emphasize the lines.
