I've been sketching the past week in my journal..
and after which do a color wash with water colors over the sketch..
I finally bought myself a fountain pen (cheap one to start off with)
and a bottle of permanent ink..

Tea house in Lijiang, Yunnan, China
ink sketch and watercolor

Sketching brought a whole lot of a different experience altogether
especially when there is a preference for ink sketching...

Lotus flowers
ink sketch and watercolor

and I had to pluck up courage to sketch in a public place....

a day out at the library...

ink sketches

I'm taking in the lessons learnt through this process..
a way of seeing...
and lots of patience and committing oneself to the whole process..

Thanks for coming by..... :))
