swatching winsor & newton designer gouache colours in my new sketchbook

Here’s the latest new video up on my YouTube channel

I’m starting a new sketchbook after I finally finished the last spread (see my previous post for that video!).

If you are thinking about getting some gouache paints, you might find this video helpful. I have filmed this in real-time, and talk through why I like each colour, and what I use them for as well as showing you some of the pens and markers I use in my work. I’ve listed the materials used below and also tagged them on the screen in the video.
