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!
