We had a lovely walk through the woods today, birds calling and sun shining through the trees.

The above watercolour and ink is simple but (hopefully) effective, using strong contrasts, catching the light playing throught the trees. You may have noticed I rarely use black but restrict my darkest values to blue, purple, browns. I do use black to make a green (with yellow ochre) and also for local colour (If an object is black and needs to be shown to be black).
