Ever since I saw the video of Danny Gregory sketching his breakfast (see this post), I have been enthralled with the idea of a watercolor sketch journal. I signed up for two workshops - The Daily Sketchbook with Gina Armfield, and Watercolor Sketch overview with Jane LaFazio.
I'm still waiting for my special watercolor journal to arrive for Gina's class; but I finished my first assignment for Jane's class this evening, and I'm excited to share it with you...
Koi Pocket Watercolor set, and I was really happy with how bright the colors are. I learned a lot just from this first lesson, and I'm looking forward to learning more!
I can already tell that the two workshops are really different in style, even though they are on the same topic. I think they will complement each other well. I will keep you posted as they both progress. In case you are interested, you can find out more about Jane's class here; and Gina's class here.
Oh, and have you heard about the new journaling series from Martha Lever? It's called Lollapalooza and it looks super fun fun fun! Painty, messy, collagey and colorful! There are three classes - Lollapalooza 1, 2 and 3, and each one has a totally different flavor to it. They look like something that anyone could do, even if you are just starting out in art journaling. I couldn't resist - I signed up for all three! They start at the end of April, and go once a month for three months. Find out more info here.
Thanks so much for visiting and I will see you again soon!
