I didn’t think I would say this but I am really enjoying this technique. It’s very liberating. No rules, just drawing with the brush pen what I feel the watercolor marks are telling me to do. I may get a few more pages ready in my sketchbook so I can do more. In the mean time I still have some other stuff to get done but the nice thing is I can take a break and watch TV and do these type of flowers.
I love working in Square sketchbooks. This one is actually a square Moleskine I found somewhere. I don’t remember where I purchased it. The paper isn’t the best for wet media so I only use the one side but that’s ok because I have been able to do some surprising projects in it, most of the using techniques from Carla Sonheim’s classes, which can be pretty messy.
This one is actually a Pam Garrison exercise but Joanne Sharpe does something similar. I went rogue by using a brush fountain pen.
