Here is a wonderful collection of watercolors painted on moleskine by Scottish Illustrator Wil Freeborn.

Freeborn is a web designer, designing websites for museums, stables, and the Scottish Ballet, among others. But in his spare time, he takes his bike, hops on a ferry and goes exploring. “It’s almost like turning it back into an adventure. It’s like a childhood thing,” he says.

He started by drawing the people on the train. “You’ve got 20 to 30 minutes of a commute every day and you can either read or draw. And if you draw every day, you start to notice yourself getting better and you lose that worry that it’s got to be good. It just becomes a routine and it’s disposable. It’s quite a nice place for the mind to be in because you let it go a wee bit.”

I highly suggest checking out the larger version in order to see all the details!
