Christmas vacation has official begun. I've been inspired by fellow artists to take a few moments out of a very hectic time of year, to sit for awhile with my journal and sketch. Add in some Peerless watercolors and I'm indeed content by the fire.
Thanks to Jodi Ohl and Alisa Burke for their sketchbook inspiration and also to the incomparable Joanne Sharpe for introducing me to the magic of Peerless watercolors and for the inspiration her beautiful work always provides.
These are the first two pages completed in my new Mixed Media Art Journal by Strathmore. I love the smooth, albeit sturdy pages. Great for sketching, without the texture of watercolor paper, and yet strong enough to hold up to wet media. Yes, I'm a happy journaler.
And did I mention...it's VACATION!
