one of my all time favourite shops in london, l. cornelissen stocks art materials, but not just like your regular art shop, its a specialist in all types of mediums, from inks, to watercolours, to gouache etc…. there are bottles, jars, tins, tubes of everything that you would ever need. the problem is that i dont even know what you use most of the things for! its definitely a place for inspiring your creativity – i bought some lovely pastels, in their gorgeous boxes, you feel that they are themselves an art piece and will try them out in the large choice of sketch books that they have in stock. what a brilliant present to buy somebody interested in art, a starter kit in drawing or painting with a lovely notebook – perfect for any young teenager!
i recently joined a watercolour class and started painting these flowers – these were the flowers that were in my mother’s day bunches. watercolours are easy to do, you dont need much space, you just need a brush and a few colours and water…..
