Sharing my drawings and paintings with all my artist friends.

I was getting ready to make a journal for the class I am taking with Laure Ferlita. I got the paper cut but since it isn't really watercolor paper and that is the medium I would be using, I thought I'd better test it out first. Hmmmm, the little pumpkin sort of came out okay but I sure didn't like the stripes on the wash. This is done on multimedia paper which I had read on some blogs was good for watercolor. Well, when you compare it to the washes made on watercolor that came out so smooth with almost no effort, I don't agree. I guess I'll make the journal but use it for colored pencil or something else but NOT watercolor.
I've got some Canson Edition paper in a dark beige and some Brockford paper in blue, torn down for a journal. I need to make a cover and then put it together which will be in the coptic stitch style for a change. I've never tried these papers or the journal type so it will all be new. I've heard good things about all of them. Hmmm, but I heard good things about the multimedia paper too. Well, that's why we should try different things at times so we know what WE like or don't like!
