Sketchy times

Now I’ve got my new best friend gouache on the case, plus some fabulous pastels that are so cheap I didn’t buy them for about a year as I thought they’d be rubbish and they are completely brilliant, my sketchbook is adorned with the likes of this:

I’ve been wanting to use the brooding grey and yellow colour combination for ages – you know those skies you get over a yellow field? Β That. Β But I accidentally picked up a pink pastel…..and I love it.
