I find it hard now to believe I used to be scared of watercolour. These days it’s almost as much a comfort zone for me as Copic markers and yet I can look back even in the last sketchbook I used and find plenty of examples of horrible overworking. But right now I feel like I’m in a good place where I understand where to stop so that I don’t overwork – and I think perhaps that’s because I took Sketchbook Skool’s Coloured Pencil course and now feel much happier finishing paintings with coloured pencils instead of adding those extra layers of watercolour.

I drew this in a Laloran sketchbook with a Copic multiliner, painted it with Zecchi Toscana watercolours and finished it with coloured pencils.

I love drawing things. These days I am rarely found without a pen, pencil or stylus in my hands. In my working life I spend a lot of time in meetings and classrooms, reading papers and strategies, so my home life provides a creative antidote to all that! I also have chronic pain, lots of it. I have scoliosis, fibromyalgia and CRPS, so my life is a balancing act, trying to balance work, which make me feel part of the real world, with pain, which is ever present, and art, which soothes my pain.
