In Context: Warm-Ups Matter

July 17, 2017
A page spread in an 8 inch square Handbook Watercolor Journal I’m testing. I warmed up with a contour drawing of a dog (verso) and then a painting of a chicken (recto), both based on Sktchy photos. Collaged fortune cookie fortune. Pen and watercolor. (I’ll have a full review of this commercially bound journal at a later time. I was just getting used to the water manipulation on this paper here.)

The rest of this month and through the first weeks of August I’ll be working with bookbinding students so I’ve got some short “summer reading” posts coming up. Later I’ll have some product reviews, tips posts, and of course some Minnesota State Fair Prep!
