Most mornings when I have time I like to fill a page of my sketchbook with colour.
It's become more of an art journal than a sketchbook because I'm making intuitive images, shapes and colours that come from somewhere that I'm not entirely conscious of when I'm in the process.
For instance, if I feel like I need to see lime green and pink then I make a drawing using it.
I sometime have an idea of making a random background and then layering on top to define areas, like with these leaves above. I then add some more detail to it with pens.
Souffle pens are great for drawing over a dark area. The pigment turns out a lot lighter when it dries.
I've made a short little video of some of my time in early May. I hope you enjoy.xx
