Often when I haven’t painted in a while, I resort to painting something very familiar and loved to get me back in the mood. Since I spent so much time trying to be outdoors this Covid summer, I took some time off from painting. I felt rusty so I thought I would start with a familiar little house in the landscape. It felt good to get my paints and brushes out again and paint, Just off the Beaten Path!
The summer issue of Art Journaling Magazine is still available at stores such as Barnes and Noble for just a few more weeks! Inside this issue, you will find my article, Color Choices, about how I make my color choices in my paintings and art journal pages.
I love to take my journals with me when I travel. Often it is hard to narrow down what supplies to take with me. On a recent get away to Montana, I took the bare necessities because there was not a lot of room in the car. One thing I forgot to take and really missed was some glue or Yes paste for all the maps and paper items that I like to collect and add to my journal pages. But I was able to prepare some of the backgrounds of my pages by using my color choices that I write about in my article Color Choices!
I am excited to be published in the Summer issue of Art Journaling Magazine. My article, Color Choices, covers how I use color in my watercolor art journals. There are lots of examples of my paintings as well as some color studies.
