Coffee and W&N watercolours in sketch-book with hand-made satin-finish linen paper
the modern woman | bereft | without internet
Yesterday my internet was off the whole day! I felt like an addict that hasn’t had his “daily fix”! But I actually got quite a bit done; some filing, working in the garden and most wonderful of all, painted to my heart’s content! Six all together, counting the small sketches like this one, which is done with watercolour pencils in a beautiful little Hand-made sketchbook (7″ × 5″), which I bought in Durban (South Africa), filled with linen satin-finish pages. Using the pencils on this new medium was quite a challenge, as one cannot fiddle or wet the page too much as it tends to soak right through. I also couldn’t do any pencil sketching, as trying to rub out the pencil marks afterwards, lifts the fibres and leaves big, rough patches.
