Picking up a pencil, pen and brush again. Trying new techniques and maybe developing my own style.

Seeing a flower
Our first exercise was to sketch a flower that Marilynn brought to class. I picked a Day Lily, since a lovely clump of these cheerful flowers were blooming outside our cabin. To get a better view of the flower I propped it up on the desk using my kneaded eraser and some tape. The overhead lights cast a multitude of shadows, which to me seemed as interesting as the actual flower.
I finished the journal entry, then added some text and a nice border. When I am immersed in the art side of my brain, it can be hard to switch over to language side. I often block out a space for the text when designing the page, but come back and add it at a later time.
