In the studio
Yes, another journal has been added to the stack. We won't talk about how many I now have in use (I'm not even sure). This one just for daily practice, as I'm sure you noticed.
I also purchased a few Ampersand Aquaboard panels. I'm so excited to try these out. I love working in watercolor/gouache/etc. but the thought of framing work has always been daunting. Don't have to frame these panels so I'm hoping I fall in love with them.
With the new panels, thought I'd try a new color on the sides. Usually I use a black/brown paint or sometimes dark brown stain, but this time I'm going light. A little creamy white with some dark accents. A little tricky with these Aquaboards as I didn't want to get any of the acrylic paint on the top. Lots of careful taping. I am curious to see how it looks with the painting complete.
