Watercolor, calligraphy, quotes
and collage in a new art journal.
The pages measure 8 1/2" x 11."
It is larger than many of the
journals I've worked in recently.
The larger size does present
different challenges. Obviously
there is more space to fill, but I
try to leave a border around
the edge so the finished page
will fit onto my scanner.
A sketch of parts of one of our
cottonwood trees. The bark is quite
deeply lined with furrows, and has
a bit of light green moss. The leaves
that I sketched had been damaged
by insects. The branch silhouettes
are always interesting against the sky.
Iron weed adds a lot of color
to the roadsides...
A spread in the Bits and Pieces journal.
It's now full. The small size of the pages,
5" x 8", made it seem easier to complete.
The last page, with watercolor leaves,
a tiny collage, and fabric.
