my art diary or how to make (or at least think about making) art while spending quality time with the day job, family, friends & dogs (not in any particular order)

daily drawing 10.11.16
first up, I brought this book specifically because I knew that the backgrounds might be good for this hotel and that it might be a good place to use these backgrounds- which I've been struggling with a bit.
luckily, I had some time to sit at the pool and drew
back in my room, using watercolor paints and pencils. I had fun playing with layers of w/c (glazes maybe) to create darks and separation from the cabanas.
in the stillman & birn epsilon series book- a lighthouse (inland in texas) and the light in my hotel room.
love the staedtler pigment liner pens. love the way the stillman & birns journal paper takes pen & pencil, pleasantly surprised with how it takes light washes of water media.
I keep bringing too much stuff. I did draw in 2 books, but have another I haven't used, and too much stuff to draw with.
glad I brought and used my handmade journal
I like my winsor newton w/c kit better than the nice flat little aquafine I keep for my work kit. the colors just aren't as nice.
stop bringing markers! (see #2)
or- just bring markers and use them
let's see how tomorrow goes- more people sleeping on planes no doubt
