There is something about a new journal I can not resist. I have so many different journals I work in and I still can't walk pass a journal in the shops without wanting to buy it. It's like an addiction ... you know you just gotta have it! There is a journal for watercolors, one for pens and markers, one for mixed media, one for faces, one for soul collage work, one for lyrics of music and poems and and and ... Well it makes me happy .. Whenever I see a journal I have to touch it, cuddle it in my hands, hold it against my heart and smell the paper.
I want to include two of my recent watercolor sketches that I have been working on. I am still struggling to get enough strength in my shadows ... think I am too scared of messing it up but I need to practice light and shadows because to me that is the essence between a good and average painting. I recently bought a little A5 size spiral bound Watercolour Pad with 180gsm acid free paper from Crimson & Blake and I want to fill it with little daily watercolor practice pieces out of my daily life. Hope to do one page every day but we will see how it goes.
