I’ve been working in my moleskine sketchbook, testing different mediums to see what it will hold up to. The pages on the left were done using water soluble crayon and Matte Gel Medium and the ones on the right were done just with colored pencil. Both work great and none of the Pitt Pen bled through the page at all. Love the smoothness of the pages, a really lovely feel to these favored journals. I had to fuzz out a bit of the writing, but wanted to share my newest journal with you. What did you journal about today?
This was so much fun and was over way too soon. I knew from the moment I read this weeks challenges who my pick for favorite artist would be. Now, mind you I have a whole list of inspiring artists that are out there right now, Misty Mawn of course being one of them, but for this challenge I wanted to go back further. I have loved this work of Amedeo Modiliani, ‘Portrait of a Woman in a Large Hat’ for a long time. I have often thought to replicate it as an inspiration page in my journal, but have never gotten around to it until now. I love the warm skin tones he achieved and those amazing blue eyes that aren’t really eyes at all. Graceful, long neck, and features, and the hand, I love adding a hand to my work. So representative of all women do. It seems that art is inspired by those who have gone before us and the visual images we are exposed to everyday. Look around you and be inspired.
