Today’s face: Elex, inspired by Sktchy and today’s Inktober 2017 prompt “fall”. While I’m a very amateur watercolourist the handmade Greenleaf & Blueberry paints I’m using a lot right now make my portraits look a tiny bit like I know what I’m doing. They’ve persuaded me that anyone who says the quality of materials doesn’t make a difference is lying! Looking through my little watercolour book there’s a very obvious step change when I started using them. So I seriously recommend them – they’re expensive but worth every penny IMHO.

Drawn in a Fabriano Venezia sketchbook with a Micron 005 pen and painted with Greenleaf & Blueberry watercolour paints.
