In my Sketchbook this week…

I’m part way through working up the colour spreads in book number seven, NATURE CALLS and this has meant a fair bit of messing around with different media. My default setting is for watercolour and chalk pastel, so I set them aside and got out the water soluble coloured pencils, the oil pastels and coloured pens. It was fun! 

I was working on rainbows.

And textures for backgrounds.

Colouring pens and oil pastel

What’s your medium of choice?

  1. Hi Jules,
    First thanks for liking, following and commenting on my site. You are my first follower! very exciting. I have an art question for you, do you take in to account that many boys who hopefully read your books are colour-blind? I ask be cause looking at your rainbow I can only see 3 distinct colours and some darker lines that appear to be the same colours. Is it something that art schools ever think about? I am just curious, as I am colour-blind, and to me it’s like being left handed (which I am) in a right handed world. Your work is so lovely and colourful I wonder if colour-blindness adds a dimension to it that as an artist you might not be aware of. Do you know if anyone has ever studied such a thing.

    1. Hi Rob, crikey, another thing that I’d never thought of. (There are so many.) My Mum was colour blind – she couldn’t tell blue from green. What colours can you see? I’m guessing people can be colour blind in all sorts of ways. Harry’s dad was red/green colour blind – interesting at traffic lights.
