It’s always a challenge to create art in this journal because of the unusual long rectangular size. I took my journal and basic supplies to the beach. I sat under a nice shaded umbrella and stared at the blank canvas while listening to the waves, gently roll up on shore. There was a breeze going which was really nice on such a hot day.
I love birds and thought it would be fun to create a whimsical sketch with these little guys. I sketched in my design and colored it with the Kimberly Watercolor Pencils. I used the Niji Waterbrush to activate the colors.
Since it was a scorcher of a day, I laid my wet painting in the sun for a few minutes. Once it was dry, I outlined it with the Sakura Micron Pen #03. When I got back home I added a few highlights with my Sakura Gelly Roll pens, Star Dust Stickles and Voila! I had a new sketch in my journal that makes me giggle. Hope it makes you giggle too :)
