We popped into Cockermouth Art and Craft today, they stock Colour Sketch – Lake District, and Paula showed us her version of Blea Tarn: in watercolour. I like it.
Paula gave us a tip too: use masking tape to stick your sketch sheet to a board if your doing watercolour, it will keep the sheet smoother and when you’ve finished you’ve got a nice clean border – good idea!
