Mini-vacation

Published by at 12:11 pm under sketchbook,tools & tech

I delivered my first round of layouts on Monday (yay! 240 pages!!). So yesterday I took the day off to relax. I got over to Mt. Auburn for a bit in the afternoon, and did these, plus another piece that needs more love before I post it.

Mt. Auburn - trees, bushes and flowers

Mt. Auburn - monument in the trees

Incidentally, these were done using a cool new toy I picked up called a Niji Waterbrush. It’s a nylon brush with a water reservoir in the handle, which means you can do watercolor without carrying a separate water container. It’s awesomely handy, though the drawback is that you don’t have as much control of the loading & flow as you would with a regular brush.

    The Niji waterbrushes are great for portable watercolor painting.
