Chilling. Jan 29:18 Hahnemuhle ( 30 sketches in the Hahnemuhle)Hahnemuhle Watercolour Book; Daniel Smith Paint; Platinum Carbon Pen

This is a rather domestic sketch and something I would normally do in my Stillman and Birn Alpha 6×9 but because I am committed to 30 sketches in the Hahnie ( yes a pet name … what can I say), here it is.

I did a light pencil sketch then straight to paint and then inked a bit. Sketching with the book on my lap certainly changes perspective.

Here I let myself sketch and paint much more loosely, wanting to break free of the mess of yesterday’s effort. It actually felt quite good.
