Every day in May no. 16


This is partly drawn on our balcony, but the wind was too cold so I went inside to finish it. Which means some of the scenery is a bit made up... Boy is it hard to draw land-/cityscapes on these small pages, but I´ve made up my mind to do all these May drawings in it - if nothing else to finish the little thing so I won´t have to use it anymore! :)

The coloring was done with the Kremer Pigment watercolors, I am still not quite used to how they react when mixing them, but I like them more and more.

12 x 8 cm, Lamy Safari, Noodler´s Lexington Grey and Kremer watercolors on a small Moleskine Watercolor page.

Nice job with the foliage and the brick wall is excellent! Wouldn't know you were finding it hard!q

So that's the secret behind those saturated colors: Kremer - and of course some talent thrown in to boot!

It's hard to imagine that this is so small - you've put in such a lot of detail. It's very beautiful.
