Wednesday again already, time for another snoop around about 150 or so desks in various stages of disarray. Hop over to the head honchos desk, Julia Dunnit, who keeps an unruly bunch in order every Wednesday, and join in the mayhem that is WOYWW
So what's on mine? A box containing the full set of Letraset watercolour markers, which have been very underused while I chased after perfection with my ProMarkers. Perfection elusive, I unearthed my watercolour markers, went and bought a set of brushes from The Works, and started playing. I found the colours too intense in the main if I applied with the nibs, but you get a wonderful splashy watercolour effect if you scribble the nib onto a hard surface (I used a glass stamping block) and pick up the colour with a brush.
I found it much more difficult to get an impression of light and shade than with Promarkers, but many soggy pieces of paper later, realised that less is more, and that I need more practice!
