Derwent have brought out a sketchbook with watercolour paper (http://www.pencils.co.uk/product.aspx?mid=2752) in and it's really nice. 140lb, smooth and designed to be used with water soluble pencils/Artbars etc.

so I did a page doodling with some of their water soluble media that I have

I'll try it out with gouache and watercolour and mixed media as well but so far I really really like the weight and the surface.

I used their waterbrush for all of these.

Vivien,

The field is wonderful. The colors are vivid and intense. Does this come as a hard bound sketch book(I hope)?

Helen - sadly no, not hardbound. Something to suggest to them though. A hardbound book of this paper would be good.

I think I'm going to enjoy gouache Debby. I used it a lot in my Foundation Year at college many years ago but not really since then,

Thanks - I'll try to do a wip when I can.

I've just done a very intense 4 days as artist in residence, demonstrating them at a big art show - phew, catching breath.

These are some of the little demos I was doing, showing techniques possible.

there are more but I haven't scanned them yet.

I've been away due to bereavement/terminal illness.

What a great thread... I absolutely love the color use in the last three pictures... So rich in texture that it feels like you could almost feel them on the screen...
