Spark

This is a bit of a mess, but it was fun playing and pushing paint around. First time I’ve used board too. Bit of faffing around with gessoing it beforehand.

I Love Hue

I Love Hue could be the ideal mobile-phone game for painters. It’s beautifully designed, and it’ll test your sensitivity to various kinds of colour contrast.

Playing with watercolour pencils

Watercolour pencil

My youngest daughter bought some Staedtler Noris aquarell watercolour pencils with some money she’d got for her birthday. She let me have a play with them, and the above was the result. I really enjoyed using them. They are quite nicely pigmented, and they produce some surprising effects when you dip them in water or brush over your marks with water.
