pen and ink and coloured pencils in NPG Seawhite Sketchbook
The skies are very difficult to draw this summer. They're either incredibly grey and uninteresting or it's raining cats and dogs and you don't want to be out sketching!
I'm trying out a new sketchbook. This one is slightly bigger than a Moleskine and the paper has more of a tooth although still smoother than most. It's made for the National Portrait Gallery by Seawhite of Brighton and I think the paper is a heavyweight cartridge paper. It looks very similar to this one.
It took pen and ink and coloured pencil fine - however I still prefer the Moleskine paper. I think this one would be better for those wanting to use watercolour.
