I had recently completed a line drawing based on my home town and thought it would be perfect to try out the brushes. I use a Windsor and Newton Cotman Watercolour set which I've had for quite a few years now. It's been about eight years I think, so that's pretty good going. I'm planning to get a smaller set for travelling about as when it's sunny it's nice to sit and sketch with watercolours. I did have a look for a set in Edinburgh the other day but didn't quite find what I'm looking for.
After quite a few hours of layering up (pictured with with the watercolour set, I'm about half way), I eventually finished off the piece with a few scribbles of coloured pencil. I often like to do this to add a bit of texture at the end.
