Actually, I was cheating! I was indoors, doing some little sketches from photos and generally playing. I wanted to try out my lovely new Inktense Blocks (by Derwent), which I was given for Christmas. I love that they’re a drawing medium, but that you can then wet them, at which point they become like paint. And then they dry, and you can draw over them again. So great possibilities for working back and forth. And unlike watercolour pencils, they don’t shift once they’re dry, so you can put other colours on top. I think they’ll be great for sketching outdoors – they’re very quick to use, light and easy to carry, and very versatile.
There’s a very useful demo at How to use Derwent Inktense Blocks
and you can also use them on fabric which I’m itching to try 🙂
