So summer is finally here. All of my teaching commitments are done and I will be painting and traveling the summer long. I love June! Just savoring the knowledge of complete painting freedom makes me feel different. In celebration of the fact, the morning "pinkness" greeted me. Many people have asked to show the watercolor underpainting so here it is (below).
Last week I bought 2 more of my favorite sketchbooks and I am using them somewhat differently. As expected, my millions of sketchbooks are full of sketches and memory descriptions. This time I am using the sketchbook as a diary of sorts. Each days thoughts, paintings, photos in progress, memory descriptions, mixing charts, etc. will be included. It will be numbered by date. The thought behind my change is that I want to see patterns and understand the underlying threads that may help lead me to new places. Onward!
