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.

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.
The importance of reading, to learn, to enjoy and to escape. It's one of my favourite things to do.
