Set of Inktense pencils by Derwent (a Christmas present) and colour swatches in sketchbook; Inktense pencils can be activated with water to deposit vibrant ink colours onto the paper.

Bottom row: Another Sea to Sky strip study in A3 sketchbook. Centre board – transferring original houses scene to a stretched piece of watercolour paper, I intend to colour the work with the ink pencils. Small leaf patterns in acrylic paint, on 8″ square boards, testing out some ideas for larger canvases, Prima watercolour paints.
