Watercolor and white acrylic paint
in my Hobonichi Techo, above. The paper
holds up very well. Even though the
pages seem thin, the paints do not
show on the back at all...
Our last snow fall was very pretty
sticking to all the trees. I could hear
the wind blowing clumps of snow
off of the branches and hear it
hitting the ground with a
wet 'plop.' It all melted the same day.
A friend gave me some pages from
a children's book that she was preparing
to use as an art journal. I can't resist
Winnie-the-Pooh, and had to paste
this conversation into my Techo.
I am thankful we don't get many
earthquakes where I live, though
they have been known to happen!
Some days the Techo drawings
are pretty random...
A sketch of my travel mug for
the T Tuesday blog hop-- to
qualify as my 'beverage reference.'
On Tuesdays, anyone can join in
the blog hop, as long as you reference
a beverage, with a photo, artwork, or even
a video clip. Join in for some fun!
There is usually a wide variety of viewpoints.
The Techo has somewhat
replaced my enthusiasm for
The Documented Life Project 2016,
But I am still keeping up with it.
I don't like to quit a project once
I've started it. Modifications are definitely
in order though, as these calendars show.
The daily tiny drawings from January
became 'several days at a time' on
February's calendar. In March, I
decided to do one large image
for the month. The crocus photo
was taken by a friend, who permitted
me to draw from her photo. I am not liking
the distracting lines from the calendar...
the diagonal striped page is a pre-printed
scrapbook type page that I had chosen
for my monthly divider. Perhaps not
the best choice. Maybe I should try this
image again on plain watercolor paper?
