WOW! What a fantastic group of drawings!! You were working hard, in between plates of delicious food...! It is always a thrill to see your sketches. I peer into them, and think... "how did she balance that page? Is that pencil crayon? I have to remember to leave more space, but make the page feel finished..." Lessons from Harika - Thank you!!

Thank you so much! I need more holidays like that one...

Well if you'd like to know about the pencils, I've taken to using a dark cadmium orange colour pencil from Faber Castell (I can't read what type it is since it's all chewed up!), a blue lead in a mechanical pencil, and an indigo Derwent Coloursoft pencil. The drawings were then layered in watercolour (except the side of the cliff, which was straight paint).

Warm wishes from Rabat!
