Around that we also talk about how Colin's watercolour work has changed through the experience of working further with Pastel Pencils. It has been a number of years since Colin last painted with Watercolour so how has his approach shifted? We talk about this and more in this podcast.

We discuss a bit about the early stages of Colin's career and which areas he found most enjoyable. He wasn't expecting to enjoy teaching as much as he did so find out what it was like to discover his passion for sharing his knowledge.

How did the "job" affect his passion for art? Colin talks about the tough parts to the job and whether that changed his love for drawing and painting.

We also touch upon getting back into Watercolour after years off working with Pastel Pencils.

- Benefits to taping your work down to a piece of hardboard just bigger than the picture

- Start out with copying Colin’s pictures first, picking up the techniques then working on your own pictures. you’ll pick up the application of colour, importance of underpainting and base colours as well as the pencil technique.

We also talk about how Colin's process has changed since working with multiple brands of pencil. What new effects can be achieved with softer pencils?
