I’m so over Inktober. Three days in and I’d had enough of monochrome making me miserable so I’m back to doing what I love – with colour and whatever medium I feel like using.

This is the beautiful Nazli from the Museum by Sktchy app, drawn on my IPad Pro using the Procreate app.


Today is Day 1 of Inktober 2021 when artists worldwide draw in ink for the entire month. Today’s Inktober prompt is Crystal and I chose to draw Sktchy muse Weston WIlliams with a Bic 4 colour pen.


My last few watercolours have been a complete disaster. I’m not sure why, I just seem to have been really struggling with technique, control, paper, everything. It goes that way sometimes. So it’s been a few weeks since I’ve opened my watercolour sketchbook. But today I painted this portrait and it came out so better than anything I’ve done recently and I’m so glad. I made plenty of mistakes, pilling the paper in a few places, but I’m still very happy with it. Hoping it means I’ve found my watercolour mojo again.


My husband bought me a SketchboardPro as a gift and this portrait of Kennedy is the first drawing I’ve made on my iPad Pro using it. The iPad Pro fits into it and it basically creates a much larger and portable working desk space for drawing, which you can use anywhere. I love how much space it gives me to rest my arm now.
