If you're new to Art Journal Every Day, there is a short introduction here. All of the previous posts can be found archived here. There is a flickr group for sharing right here. Remember, it's just ten minutes of nourishing your creative self every day! No need to finish anything or even like it. If you've done some art journaling this week and you've blogged about it, or put it on flickr, please leave a link in the linky list at the end of this post. Thanks!
I don't think that I have a particular style in which I always art journal. I'm kind of all over the place and maintain several art journals so that I can express myself differently depending on my mood. This past week I worked in my daily journal, did a page in my watercolor travel journal, and experimented in a brand new journal. Today I thought I'd share the latter two pages with you.
Just a quick sketch in the airport. Used a Pitt Pen and my trusty Sakura watercolor set (which comes with a waterbrush). He had an unnaturally high forehead, which I think I managed to capture. I really enjoy doing these quick character sketches. Looking back at them, I can really remember so much about the moment.
This very sad face -- I think I was working something out when I worked on her (art therapy?) -- was done using watersoluble crayons. I know I've mentioned that I'm less interested in "pretty" faces these days and more interested in faces with character -- faces that tell a story. I think she does. And I'm rather pleased that despite the bright colors she still transmits some dark emotions.
Are you an all over the place journaler? Or do you have a single style you usually work in?
Here is this week's linky list:
