A Sketch A Day - The Begonias (and a Geranium)





This week I thought I'd get the watercolours out and do some splodgy florals.  Then I decided to try some charcoal sketches.  I wasn't convinced that I liked them and wondered what would happen if I blobbed a bit of water on top of the charcoal.  It was a Eureka moment.  I really thought I'd tried nearly every type of art technique and material on the planet and couldn't believe I'd not stumbled across this simple trick before.  I was so pleased with the results that I scanned them in straight away and stuck them in a group of designs!  This daily sketching exercise is paying it's way!
