Greetings and sunshine to you all. Something for your sketch portfolio this week.

Choosing the Lisianthus flower, we look at steady drawing and noticing shapes and angles, putting all the colour notes and information onto a study page. This sort of page is great for beginners and those practicing or gathering information for a proper study. It's also quite nice not to have the pressure of a full finished painting every time you find your creative moments.

I am also introducing a new pink from Daniel Smith. Every now and then a colour comes along that makes your heart sing. I make no apologies for my colour choices, I feel we must celebrate the freedom to experiment with what colours work for us individually and it's of course it is entirely up to you if you want to add it, but this one is lovely.

Happy playing! Billy
