Love the simplicity of this lovely little sketch Tessa.

This immediately caught my eye, Tessa: beau-ti-ful!

I love the effect that multi media have on a subject. A subtle and delicate study Tessa. Tombow paint pens, I’m intrigued, I haven’t come across do you use and find them for painting Tessa?

Thanks a lot Katy, Alan,Linda and Fiona. The Tombow pens are a bit like a felt pen but dual ended with a brush at one end and a fine pen at the other.

At present I don’t have much of a colour selection but if you like pencil or pen sketching when you’re out and about, they’re a useful addition to pop in your bag or pocket. The effect is similar looking to watercolour.

Thanks for the info Tessa, they sound handy to have when out and about.
