I’m finally catching up on my 2015 sketch journal. This spread is from a wonderful weekend spent at Rosario Beach on the coast of Washington State last Spring. The weather was perfect, the water was glassy calm and we had lots of fun exploring tide pools out on the point.
I am using a sketchbook I made myself with 140lb Fabriano wc paper. This paper has a smoother finish, so takes ink well, but has enough texture to be able to manipulate the watercolors. I use tube paints, Winsor Newton and Daniel Smith, and Albrecht Durer, Faber-Castell watercolor pencils, which are wonderful. Inking is done using my inexpensive little Preppy fountain pen and waterproof carbon ink.
This was so much fun, I can’t wait to begin a new page!
Stay creative! It is the best therapy!
