Oh what a perfect day with all the right ingredients (latte). This is just so lovely and peaceful. I love it.

Love it - Love your sketches!

It does sound like a perfect way to start the day. I like how the doorway here just invites us in. Lovely!

It's quite beautiful. I'm wondering - that looks like a regular Moleskine sketchbook as opposed to the Moleskine watercolor. Did you use watercolor on it, and if so how well did the paper take the color?

Thankyou Joan.

Thanx Karen.
This is the first time I used watercolour directly into my moleskin sketchbook, I usually use watercolour pencils which tend to break the surface enough to allow water.
It did bead up, it did stain in places and roll in others BUT I kindda liked the effects it gave, it is afterall a 'sketchbook' and I think the unpredictable behaviour of my pans added to the sketchbook feel, I'm going to try a few more like this.
The paper held up perfectly btw!
