DIY Camera Lens Cover Holder

I’ve recently gotten myself a Sony a6500 camera. It’s been really fun using it. But the lens cover has been a very annoying thing.

Watercolour: missing you





Drew out cat with Sakura micron. Used faber-castle water colour pencils and a waterbrush. First time using the waterbrush. So I didn’t get a good control of the water flow. The colours ran. But I still liked the effect from it.
