Then I decide to experiment with pen and ink. I also wanted to experiment with variations of gray tones using watercolor paint and create the following artwork of a girl on a horse. The only color is her red lips.
Then I decided to experiment with colored pencils. I recently bought some Prismacolor pencils and wanted to see what I could do with those and created the following artwork of a tiger in the snow.
I am going to experiment further and try to incorporate animals and drawing more into my journal pages.
My granddaughter also came to stay for the weekend and we had fun playing around with paints and stamps on tags.
And here are the tags that she created.
We are planning to use some of the tags on journal pages. My granddaughter also has an art journal that she is creating in and adds to it whenever she comes to stay. I will have to do a post on her art journal pages soon. What have you done lately by way of getting back to basics in your art and just experimenting and having fun with tools, supplies and techniques? I would love to hear from you. Until next time, happy journaling.
