I have started a new watercolour journal to keep all my stuff together - so I don't have loose bits of paper with paintings floating around my painting room.
I'm trying out new quick stuff - 15 minute contour drawing with a Tombow pen - then watercolour washes over. The pen dissolves nicely - can add more if you want. Strathmore Watercolour Journal 140lb - good to paint on both sides.
Thanks for all the great images Mo - they were fun. I hope to do some more here.

The last one was in gouache.

These next two were from last week - before I bought my new journal.

Love your Journal Sketches Ros - they are little gems! Why didn't I think of that as I've got unfinished Journals everywhere.

These are so cool. Great idea to have them all collected in one place instead of scattered.

These are all very impressive, Ros!!
I use a Tombow pen now and then. Love how it dissolves into washes with water!
