This week has been busy for me and I haven’t had much time for painting my large portrait of my friend. Hopefully, I will get time this holiday weekend and I will be able to finish it next week for PPF. However, I have been able to do some journal pieces this week.
I used gouache for this page. I love it as it has more body than pure watercolour. I read that quote in a book of quotes about ‘tranquility’ I am reading and thought it wonderful and suited my rather quizzical girl!
One of the reasons I have been busy is that I did a guest post for Julie Balzer’s Art Journal Every Day for this weekend. Click here to view. She wanted me to write about my experience doing the 29 FACES CHALLENGE.
Earlier in the week I managed to get out and do these two water colours in my watercolour journal. I love trees and there was a time when they appeared in nearly every painting I did. I have realized that I have not painted any for a long time. I have had a painting in my head for a long time and I think it is time to let it out. So,I think it will be the next painting I do after I finish my friend’s portrait.
The last bit of art for today is a journal page I have been working on for a while. I think I need to do something about the text. The text doesn’t show up very well when scanned. Perhaps if I put a dark lined around the edges? The text should read “Home is where my heart is.” So that is my week.
Have a great Easter Holiday every one!
