It’s been slow on the blog lately I know. This is mostly because I went and got myself a little box of watercolours and can’t seem to get enough of playing with it! The output hasn’t really been anything to write home about, but it’s early days and I’m finding it quite relaxing to just mess around. Here are some attempts. They’re all pretty tiny since I have come to realise how expensive watercolour paper is and am just cutting little practice pieces to try different things on without running through my stash too quickly. More as this little experiment develops.

Watercolor Inspiration


I love Yan Nascimbene’s beautiful watercolour illustrations. My mad love for watercolours aside, his work has a striking simplicity about it and rarely fails to strike a poignant note.

A prolific and much respected illustrator, Nascimbene’s illustrations have appeared in  Time, Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, the New Yorker, Boston Globe, Toronto Life, Scientific American, Atlantic Monthly, Hemispheres, and more. Do check out his website portfolio.
