Somewhere up in the sky I did manage to make a little art, at least one drawing. Whew- talk about cramped working conditions! Thankfully, I am left-handed so the only person I bothered was John, and he was willing to endure the occasional elbow jab in the name of art.
I added some watercolor to today’s drawing, so this was new. For the CA trip I also scaled down the size of the work, leaving my 18x24 watercolor pad at home on the table in favor of a smaller Bristol Board pad, I think it is 9x12? Too lazy to go check in my bag right now (still getting used to the time difference, 3:25 back home= 12:25 here in San Diego) Back to the paper…I really do like working on Bristol board, or a smooth watercolor. I like to feel like I have the option to switch from drawing media to painting/collage and the paper can take it. So this lil’ pad of Bristol should help me to capture some of the inspiration I feel when we come out to the west coast.
