Painting In My Nature Journal


I recently shared my Calendar of Firsts on the Ambleside Online Facebook Group.

Some of the ladies there asked if I would make a video of how I use my watercolours, so, drum roll please, here it is!

The original sketch I shared is above, and here is the copy I did for the video


The supplies I used:

Moleskine diary for the original sketch

Leuchtturm 1917 sketchbook for the copy

Fountain Pen with waterproof ink

Da Vinci 1503 size 8 watercolour brush


  • Buff Titanium
  • Moonglow
  • Indigo
  • Ultramarine (G)
  • Cobalt Blue
  • Shadow Violet
  • Permanent Rose
  • Naphthamide Maroon
  • Piemontite Genuine
  • Potter’s Pink
  • Cadmium Yellow Light

White Gel Pen for highlights

This is just a short video to share how I work. I would love to hear how you create.
