trying new tools


Last Saturday was a productive day for me. I did three pieces of sketches in the morning during sketchwalk at Eunos and in the afternoon, I did another one while waiting for my son's Akido class to end. I sat at a corner coffee shop at Ruby Lane enjoying the thick black coffee. I started with ZIG's grey watercolour brushpen but found the lines were too light to my liking. So I traced the lines over with my usual fountain pen in Noodler's Peranankan Brown ink. I believe the standard name is Polar Brown. I coloured the sky in ZIG's light blue watercolour brushpen and added the roof tiles and sign in watercolour.

I was quite pleased with the outcome.
