It's terrifically fun to be sketching daily, not caring HOW it turns out, just PLAYING!
Such a great break from the production work of making art to sell. Additionally,
it is inspiring to be on the other end of the teaching table, I'm learning new tricks!
We are exploring contour drawing, color mixing, bookmaking and now lettering.
I stitched up this sweet little sketchbook repurposing a very worn leather book,
I love thinking about who Robert Griffen is, and what he would think of me cutting
apart his lovely book. I think he might be tickled. I'm obsessed with color mixing,
so of course the first page of my journal became a little color mixing chart.
Supplies I have been experimenting with are: Microns (who can live without them!),
Pentel Color Brush pens, Aqua Pens, Staedtler Lumocolor pens, Cotman watercolors,
and a variety of gouache paints. I am mostly working on Fabriano hot press paper, LOVE it!
