The Artist's Journal Workshop by Cathy Johnson- Great Book Review
With this book Cathy shows you how she and 27 other insightful artists do just that. No I'm not a paid North Light Books employee, but I wouldn't mind if they sent me free books to review. It is just a wonderfully done book, showing you how to get over the blank WHITE page, tips and techniques to get you to make this a habit, suggests materials to use, how to put together an efficient and small journal kit for travel and a more complete one for at home. No this is not an Art Journal, you know the unique pieces of art in and of themselves made from old books or all collage based. Although I think an artist's personal journal shows that art is their daily life, and thus a work of art for them.
This was just the book to get me moving again and start to fill some of the journals I have collected. Next on the to do list is to organize a sketch crawl. More on that at a later date.
I have been working on a colored pencil wave image, not large and more for practice than anything for a larger piece. Now back to the colored pencils, oh maybe I should get dinner started..........
What art have you created today?
