Clementine? Tangerine? . .what the hell… Merry Xmas, anyway

Will somebody explain to me one day the difference between a Clementine and a Tangerine? I like them both…I think. They are so linked to Xmas in the UK.
Anyway more watercolour sketches with these unbelievable Pentel pens. Love ’em

Apple – take two

Well as I said– I thought I’d try acrylic as the final possible solution – – the colours are much closer to the russet red and green than the previous effort. but I’m still not wild about it . . . . . but it was a good exercise in seeing what can be done mixing different media . . . . . all good experience- but a quick sketch? definitely not . . .

No egos were damaged in the making of this post . . .

When I first start keeping a journal in 2003– i was ‘nervous’ about making mistakes– so I vowed I’d never tear a page out, for example. Now that my blog is essentially based on the journals, I’m posting this to prove to myself that I’m not afraid to share mistakes too! Ridiculous I know….

This was an attempt to try watercolour pencils again— it was wishy-washy- so I tried to add some colour with a Pentel colour water brush – – but it put SO much colour on I couldn’t lift it off… the end result was deeply disappointing. However I may not give up entirely on this– I might try acrylic on top….. well, why not?
