These pen & watercolour sketches from February are on a two-page spread in my 4×6″ Daler-Rowney sketchbook.

I started the book an incredible 10 years ago today, finally filling it just last week – thanks to Danny Gregory’s book The Creative License and the EveryDay Matters Group. I was compelled to reward myself almost immediately for getting back into sketching mode with this bijou tin for my half-pan Winsor & Newtons. The sketchbook page includes the dimensions of this tiny box, the colours I keep in it and a reminder to myself about pre-wetting pan colours.

As well as sketching whatever catches my eye, I’m working my way through the hundred-plus EDM Challenges, in no particular order. Challenge #10 is Draw your hand (you can peruse the full list at Karen Winters’ blog, here).

A gesture of defiance – or was I simply trying to hide my bitten fingernails?
