Sometimes I'll knuckle down and get straight on with my artwork, other times I'll doodle before, after or even during the day. This was a morning doodle that I'll call a warmup sketch. It looked fine as a pencil sketch, so using my little sketcher's watercolour set, I added colour. The purple line I added with the fountain pen after everything had dried was quite 'bleedy'. Another lesson learned - don't define with a fountain pen!
