My daughter gave me this very large sketchbook which she got from an
art shop in Dunedin, (sadly they've gone out of supplying these now, and
I find it difficult to source sketchbooks which have high gsm papers
suitable for watercolour). It is quite large, a bit too big to take out
sketching, so I decided to use it for watercolour paintings instead.
This was then a little intimidating, especially the first page as you
want it to look good!
Here is the result:
Shell Study. Watercolour. The first page in my large watercolour sketchbook.
