Putting brush to paper
The journal this month is small, 8"x 5". I prefer a larger format, but working with what you have is half the challenge. One of these paintings will span two pages and I will still have to trim it down quite a bit. I actually like cutting up paintings when I am done. Creating new angles and paper shapes. Sometimes I am happier with the finished work after hacking it up some!
Occasionally I like to add some pen and ink to watercolor paintings, or even sharpie markers. I haven't decided about these yet. Once my entry is done, I will take some photos of the journal, including entries by the three previous artists.
Last night I dreamed of painting half the night... they were peaceful dreams. The night before I made coasters in my sleep... and I woke up tired! I think I should put brush to paper every evening.
Wishing all an art-filled weekend, filled with peaceful dreams.
