The journal I am using–isn’t really meant to be an art journal. It’s a simple 8 inches by 6 inches book, filled with thin brown-toned kraft paper. The pages are thin–and they do not seem very thrilled with wet media…They are going to have to suck it up anyway because that’s what I fancy working with at the moment.

Here’s my second set of faces:
Karen actually had two reference photos for that week (watch her video–you’ll see why)…and this is just the set I made from the first reference, using sharpie and water color…because my Jane Davenport mermaid markers are finicky. Some pages in this journal, those markers work fine. The color moves effortlessly with just a touch of water…on others, that stuff doesn’t move if I use a bucket of water on them, several times….so I turned to my watercolors to play with these faces.
My next set of faces will be coming…soon…
