A quick sketch in the summer heat using my Hero 86 and Koi watercolour set.
I ordered it from HongKong a month ago, I thought maybe it would never show up, but it did and this makes me so happy – little kid, happy! Grow up but don’t grow old, as they say.
Hopefully this pen leaks less than my other Hero. It can be purchased on eBay, it’s called a Hero 593 calligraphy pen. My first Pen from China is called a Hero 86 calligraphy pen by the way, I’m am very happy with it even if it is a bit leaky.
Direk Kingnok is a watercolour artist I admire very much, I recently found this interview on a blog called, The Royal Arts: http://theroyalarts.blogspot.se/2011/12/direk-kingnok.html#!/2011/12/direk-kingnok.html

Here are a few sketches I did in the last few days with my new Hero calligraphy pen. The first two sketches are from a book called, “Anatomy for the Artist“. The other sketch with watercolour was from the wonderful street photographer, Vivian Maier‘s website.
No preparation penciling was used for these drawings, I’m trying to push myself to be free with ink and watercolour, trying to lose the fear of making mistakes.
