Nice work, Tim.November 9, 2010 at 4:42 pm
Well done |Tim,indeed – good to know I have found a convert. You could reciprocate with some advice for me …… how did you post your image? I’ve clicked Img and tried pasting one and it doesn’t work!

Did you manage to figure it out? the main thing is to do “choose file” and then “add the file”. You may have to resize it as you get a red error message if the image is too big.
Would love to get a ‘Tombowing’ competition going on this thread if you can post something (most of mine are a bit sketchy), I can even post the few that went horribly wrong.November 10, 2010 at 10:29 am
I have followed your route and Don’s and here (I hope) is a page from a sketchbook from my Sri Lankan trip. It took a while to attach to this page because I save my scanned images at high resolution and compacting them seems to take two procedures!!.. and at no time am I told how many pixels (only high/low/medium and “baseline/standard etc”. So here goes. OOps … nothing. Using serif optimiser and photoshop “save a copy” at lowest resolution doesn’t seem to change the number of pixels. Sorry, I prefer Tombow to Microsoft!! I’d better nip down to the post office.

Looks like Tombow to me Don, I too have a 969, plus a Grey N35 and Green N57, I lost the cap off my black one!February 13, 2011 at 9:55 pmAugust 27, 2011 at 10:19 pmSeptember 18, 2011 at 9:44 pmSeptember 19, 2011 at 8:55 am
I particularly like the one of St. Anne’s Moseley, Tim. What sketchbook are you using?September 19, 2011 at 3:54 pm
Thanks Don, I was quite pleased – it is tricky to get three point perspective right. The books is a “Hand Book” they are made in America but you can get them here:
I’ve had a few, they have a nice feel and they stand up really well to watercolour and are cheaper then the ubiquitous Moleskine.November 23, 2011 at 6:23 pmNovember 24, 2011 at 9:24 am

It looks OK as a sketch Tim. After all, they never finished the rest of the church… 😕November 24, 2011 at 2:19 pm
Like that one, Tim.November 20, 2014 at 7:56 am
Just to revive this thread a few years on! I’ve been struggling with watercolour outside in the colder weather (it doesn’t dry), my solution was to use Gin instead of water but whilst it works fine it bleeds thought the paper. Going to try the Tombows again.
I came across this book:
and Facebook page:
Which have a nice feel to them, more Urban Sketching than Architecture but I like the way he handles the pens, so I got the remaining colours from his starter set of suggestions and am going to try them out on Saturday.November 20, 2014 at 3:33 pm
Nice tuk tuk, John.February 10, 2015 at 8:03 pmFebruary 12, 2015 at 8:05 pm
I like these Tim. Still not sure what a Tombow is….February 20, 2015 at 4:43 pm
Interesting, Tim. Those grey scale ones make really nice looking minitures. Preferable to the larger versions IMO. Should be a good mini illustrative use for them somewhere — apart from thumbnails. First mini greyscale has a real winter feel to it.February 20, 2015 at 6:16 pm
Thanks, they are Japanese (I think Tombow means Dragonfly? perhaps Chris will correct me) twin tip water soluble markers. I’ll draw one.
