The colors of fall…
We don’t necessarily get the brilliance of fall leaf color changes as seen in our more northern states, but we do have the varied yellow-brown, and brown-yellow combination. Mixed with other brown-yellows. Yes, you get the idea. But we have palm trees year-round and no snow blizzards, so who am I to complain about our limited leaf color palette?
So on my daily walks I have been bringing home the rare yellow-brown variety to sketch. 🙂 Happy Labor Day to all my fellow Americans. Enjoy the day… rest, play, create, and love. Cheers!
Hobonichi planner books and paint…
Nothing makes me happier than good, strong well-behaved paper. And for a mix of journaling art styles, which include calligraphy ink work occasionally, I find the Hobonichi can really take a lot of my abuse.
Several layers of acrylic paint? No problem for my Techo.
Black Uniball pen and muted watercolors in my Hobonichi planner. Random explorations with color and line.
There is a sense of play that mark making provides. It frees up expectations and allows the hand and mind to wander together on a page.
New prints and art journal cards now listed in the Etsy shop. I tried to select some of the most popular images from my sketchbooks and art projects.
I am still trying to find the best solution for listing these on Etsy. They charge a fee for each listed item, so it gets expensive for me to list all these individually—if you wish to create a different set of 6, please send me a message and we can arrange a custom package for you.
Thank you to the customers that have placed orders already this week. You are awesome! 😊
I love using watercolors in my lettering projects. In this video, I’m filling up my nib with Daniel Smith watercolors and practicing some Uncial in my Hobonichi.
It’s worth the extra effort of continuous paint loading; I am able to mix up any color I want. Speedball C-3 nib in a straight holder.
