About me

My name is Brian Nelson and I am a teacher from Wellington, New Zealand. I am travelling on Sabbatical from October 2018 – January 2019. Being an artist, I decided to post no photos of my trip on social media – only drawings and paintings.

I am using two different mediums – traditional (watercolour), and digital (Autodesk Sketchbook on an iPad Pro.)

I prefer watercolour because it is more challenging, and I end up with a tangible piece of artwork. It’s nice to give them as gifts along the way.

However I am very impressed with the Autodesk/iPad combination with it’s intuitive feel and boundless possibilities. I will continue to use both.
