Yesterday I bought a new set of Schminke half pan watercolours. I've always used tubes of colour, but wanted a set of half pans to be able to do some quick, immediate work without the fuss of the usual initial setup, with tubed colour. I love magazines and decided to use my new set of colours to start a new series of illustrations: redrawing the covers of some of my favourite mags. I've used some really loose linework and brushwork to achieve a cool aesthetic. Here's the first illo below, and there will be more to come!
