Last Page—Squeezing Some More Into the Book

April 3, 2012

See the post for complete details.

120329AllergistOfficeLeft: Final page in the TH Saunders Waterford High White 90 lb. Hot Press watercolor test journal I'd made. Using a couple Faber-Castell Pitt Artist's Calligraphy pens and some Daniel Smith Watercolors.

Went in for my allergy shots the other day and didn't realize I only had the last page of the book (endsheet was blank but I had to save that for the index). So I started drawing, knowing I was going to try to fit stuff in as I could. And my first pen was totally dried out! So I restated some lines with a fresher one. Then started drawing the blonde woman (back of head view), and another person sat down in front of her (he moved before I could resolve his legs). It seemed odd to use this pen because I've been using a pencil lately. (More on that in future posts.)

I have really enjoyed this book I made with the TH Saunders Waterford High White 90 lb. Hot Press watercolor paper. I have some of this paper in the regular white and in cold press (order arrived that way and I decided to keep it), that I still have to make up into books, but I think this will be one of my favorite papers for visual journaling in the future. 

I had trouble not taking down its sister book and starting it as my next journal, but I needed a change and picked a toned paper journal instead. I look forward to working on this paper again.
