My technique for my hand-drawn illustrations starts with the line art using a Staedtler fine liner 0.05. I then add colour, either with Winsor & Newton watercolours or with Winsor & Newton inks. Sometimes I think just black line art with black ink is the most striking. I tend to work quite small so the brushes I use are usually small too. One of my most used brushes is the number 2 synthetic da Vinci. I also love to add small white dots as a finishing touch, with either a Uni-ball Signo white gel pen or in Photoshop once I've photographed the final painting/inking.
Created with traditional pen and ink. Text and background added using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop
This watercolour is part of a 'calm' hobbies series. The little bird is joining in with the joy of music.
This was created with inks and fine liner. I love the freedom of using inks with a brush. I enjoy building up the layers and textures.
I don't know why I created such a sad painting! I added the swirly decorative elements in Adobe Fresco.
