This was all about things not going well and forging ahead.
And the difference between what you want to do (personal goals)
and what happens when you are not looking!
Okay, first off, personal goals were I wanted a loose style. NOT.
(So “NOT” I want to do the entire walk over again.)
I wanted to experiment more with inks. YES, okay.
Then there was the amazingly lovely Noodler’s Baystate Blue ink,
which is supposed to be permanent. NOT.
(Fortunately I only bought a sample which just goes to show it is a
good idea to buy samples to play with. . . it IS a pretty blue!)
How this effected me was I could not do washes across the entire, let’s say,
Hotel Laguna, unless I wanted a blue hotel. And the good news is I found out
with the Lifeguard Tower and map so blue running was no big deal. . . or a small one!
I wanted to bag it and start over, but there it is in my moleskin journal and I am not interested in loosing the front page to the journal by cutting this page out, sooooo . . .
I forged on. I learned a lot more from the problems.
It is not bad, just not what I wanted.
On top of it all I went to grab a Pitt pen to do my lettering and the pen was flat!
No point! Oh well . . .
Bitch bitch, moan, groan . . . home home home . . . .
I started a Facebook group page to allow everyone to comfortably post their virtual sketches, and also where we will, from time to time, take virtual sketch walks. If you want to know more about what a virtual sketchwalk is review my first post.
I also created an accompanying Flickr group!
Come join us if you are inclined!
