Nice to have Sue lead the Virtual Sketchwalk
in Chicago this month. I’m taking the opportunity to play on Canson Colored papers, ink and watercolor on grey paper! The watercolor buckled the paper,
but it stood up to it — several layers — And did not bleed through! Caput Mortem mixed with Mummy Bauxite and Shungite for grainy stonework.
It is VERY hard for me to loosen up and just give the illusion of the place in a short time. I was a detail woman at heart, and line-work was my thing!
Canson paper loose to be tipped into my Moleskin 8×11 watercolor journal,
Pentalic HB woodless pencil, Platinum Carbon pen, Lamy Al-Star which did not work well on this paper De Atramentis Document Black, Pentel Pocket Brush Pen,
and Greenleaf & Blueberry, Daniel Smith , Holbein, and QoR watercolors.
I started a Facebook group page (you must join to view) to allow everyone to share their virtual sketches, and also where we will, from time to time, take virtual sketch walks together. Come join us On Facebook if you are inclined!
If you want to know more about what a virtual sketchwalk is review my first post.
There are a few more notes/pointers on our first walk through Laguna Beach, California.
