The highlight of the week was my art date at the beach with my artist friend, Ro. We've been threatening to do this for a very long time and finally put it into action. We go for our daily (in theory) beach walks every weekday morning when it's quiet and (also in theory) cooler.
We were each able to paint our chosen vignette from the same table. I wanted to paint trees while Ro was all about the lake and fence.
Ro used watercolors and watercolor pencils. I stepped outside of my comfort zone and worked with pastel pencils in my Moleskin journal. I had a lot of fun with it, but when we do it again this week, I think I'll be using watercolors or acrylics.
Ro and I have already selected several other locations to work with, so there should be more art from the beach to share with you.
I did create a few journal pages over the last week even though I've been working on several other projects.
Here are a couple pages created intuitively....
and a set of pages I created from odds and ends that have been driving me crazy because they keep falling out of my journal! I was watching a movie called "Field of Depth" while I was working. I really enjoy creating pages while I'm watching a movie. I jot down some of the movie lines while I'm working, and the pages always seem to be a bit quirky.
Well, that's about it for this week. I've been working like "a woman possessed" on my travel journal. Be sure to stop back by for Tuesday's Tips & Techniques. I'll show you how I made the cover. Oh, I almost forgot! Remember this?
Stop back in for Monday's Musings where I'll show you the finished project and unveil what it's all about. Meanwhile, have a fabulous, creative weekend!
