1729 – Ripening mangoes

This is my first sketch in a newly made sketchbook – this time I am trying out the very expensive Hahnemühle Britannia 300 gsm hot pressed paper. So far I am finding it a bit tricky – it’s not as immediately absorbent as the paper I used last, so the paint washes around the surface for a while. It’s going to take a while to get used to that. Anyway we bought some Guimaras mangoes from a friend on Thursday, so to avoid having to think too hard, I chose them as my subject to sketch.
