I’m tying to capture those moments in our environment that uplift us and cause us to stop for a second.
– Matthew Cooke
Pen sketching and watercolour have drawn me into a journey into sketching landscapes, architecture and experiments.
Growing up I had a grandfather who painted very classically styled watercolour landscapes and I gave it a go back then. I lost the urge for a long time after. Last year’s lockdown and all the stress that came with it, together with inspiration from my sister who has been painting for a while now, spurred me on to begin this journey that has turned into a bit of an obsession. Working from my own Instagram photos as well as others that I find all over the place online, I have been thoroughly enjoying the combination of loose penwork and watercolour.
