visual journal detail

cropped detail of a visual journal spread

I’ve never drawn a horse before! It was…frustrating. But I am happy with how it turned out. I’ve never been one to draw animals. Definitely a learning experience. I drew it on vellum with graphite.

The fern that is at the right border is the leftover stuff from a polaroid transfer. I can never get myself to throw those out. I like them as much as the actual tranfer.

Feels good to be creating again.

    Hi Bridgette!

    Thanks for your blog comment! Yes, I did paint them on site. Kind of a first for me, and it was really enjoyable.

    Today I went out and bought some new watercolors so I could do more accurate color work on the paintings I'll be doing.
