The last time I reported on this sketchbook, I was using colored pencil. I decided to work with watercolor, my favorite, and add a tad of ink from a micron very sparingly, going directly onto the paper with paint, no pencil first. I look at something in a book or magazine, and try to render it. Good practice. Plus working so small, I am not as intimidated. I am learning to work with a compact travel watercolor kit and only a few brushes. Ultimately, I would love to take it wherever I go, and paint outside or wherever. Not doing one every day, but that’s okay. Eventually, it will be filled. I painted the grave markers as I wanted to try and capture the shadows and depth of them. Grave markers really Margie? Okay, so I added the butterfly, and poof, it added whimsy. It’s all good. I am learning. A great way to experiment with watercolor or any medium for that matter.
Always exploring, Margie
