I did more experimentation in this book than any other to date.
I also went back to my 40-year-old habit of writing and sketching…
Been doing that since boring architectural history classes.
I am sorry but had to leave a lot of written pages out,
but I went through some sad and serious events, journalled and made marks,
and do not write publicly about others.
I began to paint with inks in a big way in this sketchbook,
building on my diluted-inks in waterbrushes,
adding more liquid watercolors in waterbrushes.
So much fun to do quick sketches with!
