:: Rainy Day 2 ::

This thing all things devours;
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats mountains down.
The Hobbit by J.R.R.Tolkien riddle

I don’t know why I love painting in a Moleskine Sketchbook so much as it is not really made for watercolour. It is mostly a drawing type of paper as it has some type of glaze on top of it that makes the watercolour pearl into drops onto the page instead of being absorbed… and I love that quality! It makes for very intense and deep colours. The trick is to manage to let the watercolour pearl on top of the paper instead of scrubbing it in and let it dry from a long time -) Can you guess J.R.R’s riddle from The Hobbit?

Sketchbook: Moleskine 5″ x 8″
Watercolours: Q. Gold, Cerulean Blue Chromium & B. Sienna
