Inside my sketchbook: Celestial.




As I had such a positive response on my last sketchbook post, I thought I would make them into a more frequent thing! I've really been enjoying working in my new notebook so I would thoroughly recommend checking out the rest of the Monsieur Notebook range - such lovely paper to work on even if it's not really meant for watercolours! As I mentioned in my last post, I've been really interested in stars/moons, and all things celestial recently so this is a continuation of that theme really. This illustration was made using a combination of watercolours, colour pencils, and a little bit of oil pastel - I also used a black biro for some of the finer details. Another thing I don't think I've ever mentioned on here is how much I love working in biro! It's definitely an underrated medium aha. 

I hope you're all having a good week!
