Note: I am writing a story/journal that I don’t want to show before it’s published in full. These are some of the illustrated pages in the sketchbook for the story.
Oh gads, not quite right.
I look a bit like an oriental version of me.
And maybe looking sad?
Nose should turn up more,
and eyes a bit rounder.
This is why it is called a sketchbook!
From a photo Mitchell took of me working
on the restoration of a stripped
A-frame Mason Monterey Chair.
And of course, I took liberties with the colors.
I wish my favorite plaid painting jacket was red!
Much more like him!
We do have such fun working together!
Again, took liberties as he didn’t
toss his mallet,
but it made for a better sketch.
Placed Mitchell in the finish room
with the corner column painted
bright orange (which it is)
and then made his shirt purple
(which he wears.)
I also changed the Mason Monterey chair
to one that became this lovely green shade,
and so I also took liberties with it.
Moleskin 8×11 watercolor journal with Pentalic HB woodless pencil,
Sheaffer calligraphy pen, and Platinum Carbon pen, many inks,
the most obvious being De Atramentis Document, Super5 or Noodler’s inks,
Greenleaf & Blueberry, Holbein and Daniel Smith watercolors.
