               My favourite style of illustrating is created using ink and watercolour paints. It combines drawing
               and painting and I think the results are very attractive. It's also quite a portable medium, making it
               great for illustrating on your travels.

               On this page, I've included information on getting started using inks and watercolours, with some
               beginner projects and tutorials, plus lots of examples of other people's work for inspiration. Usually
               a sketch is made in pencil, then the ink is drawn over the final pencil lines. The ink is left to dry
               before the pencil is erased and the watercolour paint is added. Or it can be done the other way
               around with the watercolour background being painted before the ink drawing is added.

               Ink is available in the form of technical pens in different sizes (where the lower the number size,
               the finer the pen nib), or in the form of a jar of ink, into which different nibs can be dipped. If you
               will be painting over the ink with paint, the ink will need to be waterproof.

               I, along with a lot of other people, find it hard to think of what to draw on that first blank page of a
               shiny new moleskine or sketchbook. Drawing and painting regularly will greatly improve your
               skills, as well as making it easier to conquer the blank page fear!

               I hope you enjoy this lens, and that it inspires you to get started drawing and painting, as they are
               brilliant creative outlets, fun hobbies and useful skills to have.
