Continuing work on my 2015 trip watercolor journal. This spread shows my memories from a trip to see our children and grand baby in Montana. We had a lovely, relaxing weekend at their home and enjoyed a drive along the Vermilion River. How refreshing!
The Vermilion River is really more the size of a creek. It is lively, fresh and cold.
Even the butterflies know little Louisa is sweet! A tiny blue one loved nibbling on her toes.
I love the way the colors blend together on the palette by the time I am finished adding color to my page. The pigments used in this spread include Prussian Green, Olive Green, Burnt Sienna, Raw Sienna, Payne’s Gray, Cobalt Blue and Potter’s Pink. Finishing touches were added using Albrecht Durer Faber-Castell watercolor pencils.
I’m loving this! Stay creative! It is the best therapy!
