I am really enjoying my time with my art journal. So much better than any diary I’ve ever tried (and failed) to keep! I’ve kept a daily record in it for a little over a month now, and what I’ve heard is correct: reviewing those drawings and paintings takes me immediately back to that time and place. With smiles to spare! Bonus. 🙂
I guess you could call this my first attempt at “urban sketching”. Not sure the homeowner would recognize his/her house, as I’m still learning about perspective, depth, balance, buildings, well, everything! I really need to think first, and ink later, as I missed, you know, a few things like windows…..but I inked it and added color with my little travel watercolor palette from a little park bench until I decided best to stop the madness. 🙂
Hopefully that book on perspective I just bought will help solve the mystery of the drunken mailbox, and countless other issues, but it’s all good. When I make art, time stops. Everything stops. It’s a very cool thing. The go anywhere, do anywhere hobby. What could be better?
I smell a weekend coming now that we’re over the hump! Look out, paintbrushes! Peace and cool breezes to all.
