Also if you want to see beautifully economical use of watercolour and drawing visit Ben’s blog at Bonelab. I’ve seen his work for real when Ben visited a few weeks back and it is even more captivating than the photos here. Best, Nicholas.

Soluble NeocolorII crayons on white paper. April 2013.

This is one of a couple of drawings I made recently using some colours new to my NeocolorII range of soluble crayons. I wanted to work some subtle colour variations into different areas and I deliberately didn’t introduce any coloured pencil or graphite into it, so it does look a bit different to some of my recent drawings.

This is the second of several drawings that I made after a visit to the Visitor Centre situated on the escarpment of the Dunstable Downs, an area in the Eastern part of the Chiltern Hills. The weather was cold and very windy and continually blew in rainstorms right across the panorama.

Landscape Summer 2012 – Garden with Trees VI

Garden with Trees VI 2013

From my archives, Garden with Trees VI 2012. I thought it would be a change to post something brighter than my recent work, but I haven’t done anything bright since last year! So I’ve chosen this. The trees here have still not leafed in any significant way. feels like we are 6 weeks behind the normal season.
