Love Story
Coloured pencils on Arches Aquarelle hot-pressed 300 gsm paper.
December 2015

A stroll together down Pontocho lane at dusk as the lanterns and neon signs start popping on; this is a love story.  The drawing is small in size yet big in heart; a Kyoto dreamscape.

Here is the paper I used – for the first time.  It took the pencils beautifully.  Information on where I sourced it is on my Art Materials page.

    I think this small picture will have a lot of impact and get much attention. Just imagine it glowing away to add light to a room!

      Thanks Anna. There is a lot of room for interpretation, I think, when working in out-of-focus. There are no absolutes, no borders, the pencils are free to skid around the page. I was trialling Arches Aquarelle from a block of 20 sheets. I must say the paper performed beautifully. I’m glad it did because I had bought four blocks and imported them from Dick Blick. Now that I know how the paper takes the pencils I’m starting a bigger out-of-focus drawing on it.
