Trying New Things - China

Watercolour and coloured pencil from a photo I took.
It felt a bit goofy pulling out my iPad for a photo of this tiny shop. But I could not resist the bright colours of the brooms and mops set against the dark background so I snapped a quick shot.  Back at the hotel, as I was struggling to get the detail I wanted in watercolour, something struck me. I went to the tiny, local stationery shop and bought some coloured pencils. I have been a bit of a watercolour and pen purist. (Can there be such a thing?) But I have to admit, adding coloured pencil to a small detailed drawing was a lot of fun. Thank you Tommy Kane.
