‘Simon the seal’ ink and watercolour #naturedoodlewash

Today when I got home from work, I decided to pop along for a nature hike with Charlie and friends. If you are interested in joining in with this exciting months challenge then pop over to Charlie’s blog for more info.

Living in the New Forest we have an abundance of wildlife to be found, but I have concentrated on a rarely found creature in our neck of the woods. The seal can be found on the south coast, but even more unusually has been sighted on the Beaulieu river, a small part of the new forest.

For this doodlewash I used for the first time my lamy pen, yay. And thank you Charlie for the recommendation, it did not let me down, in fact I  loved it. I used a selection of watercolour brands.


About REcreate-RebeccaEvansCreate

My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow. I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use. I never know what might inspire me next, but if it’s hairy, I will be sure to try.

  10. Oh my word I love Simon! To echo Laura, you do have the ability to capture the essence of an animal. Who knew you had seals in the Beaulieu river! And I’m glad you like your Lamy – I have a safari, but probably need a finer nib…what model is yours?
