Before working on a large scale project, I use my sketchbook as a ‘warm up’ by painting shapes and colour combinations that are inspired by nature, but can never occur together in the same place. These visual investigations help get my creative juices flowing and develop my ideas further.
In this sketchbook, I mostly worked with flowers and sea creatures, developing familiarity with natural forms and textures, so I can later translate them into big watercolour pieces. I painted flora and fauna from a range of angles and in a range of different mediums, including watercolours, ink markers and colour crayons.
Take a look into my previous posts about drawing people’s animals and watercolour alphabet.
