A busy journal day - handbags and an unwanted steeple

February 28, 2009 | 1 Comment


Friday night: A final cup for the thing-a-day challenge.
Saturday: Not sure what triggers my weekend migraine-like headaches…but I don’t seem to be able to avoid them at the moment.

When the headache started to lift I went to The Art Scene and made a mess of a building down the road. I then added another version on Sheer Heaven over the top and changed the direction of the light.

A bit of a girl page… The text says it all.

I am absolutely loving the portrait format of my journal but the cartridge paper is a bit limiting – and of course I have to fill the page with large areas of wash… The paper does bubble a bit but I can cope with it. Let me know if anyone knows of a portrait format hardbound journal with watercolour paper – I might have to try the handbook again….

Thankfully I started to feel better in the afternoon as my nephews came around – I sketched while they ran around the backyard – last day of summer so just had to be outside.

Then in the late afternoon I went to Eastwood, the suburb where I spent the first 7 years of my life this evening to do my guerrilla photography assignment for the week. Of course, I had to do a quick sketch as well.

It is rather tragic when a significant landmark building (of your childhood) is demolished but even worse when there is a sad and lonely portion remaining to remind you of what is no more….

Ps.  here is what I put together to put inside my second bag. I am already planning some modification – rearranging of the pans and making sure that they are dry before I take them out.

And I made this page into a weekly spread adding random notes in the pink rectangle. Why pink? Who knows!
