Post-Project Let Down: What To Do About It

        “Post-project let down.” What is it? How do you deal with it? I’ve got a few things to say about this today as the year winds down because journal keepers often experience a form of post-project let down at the end of a year. If you feel you might be prone […]

In Context: Playing with Paint

Sometimes at the end of the day I just ant to sketch and move some paint around. The detail from today’s image shows the thickness of the pink paint I mixed. I remember with happiness pushing that paint around. I used Schmincke Pan Watercolors to pull out the colors. I used a bit of Schmincke […]

I teach drawing classes that require students keep a sketchbook. Some people also ask me how journals and sketchbooks differ. The questions have so much “extra” weight. What those […]

Ways Your Journal Reflects Your Life—Unfinished Tests, Unfinished Sketches

      I hear from a lot of blog readers and students that they work on their journal sketches later, if they can’t finish them when they first set out to sketch. I believe a journal needs to reflect your life. That puts me in the “move on” camp if a page isn’t finished […]

The Property Brothers Make Change Seem Easy (with Hard Work)

Registration for Textures Class Closes Friday

I enjoy pre-painting journal pages with a variety of media. I work ahead in my journals this way. Then when I turn to a pre-painted page I use that page to challenge myself to come up with a visual solution. It’s a lot of fun, and a great way to build layered, rich pages, with […]
