It used to be very important to completely finish a visual journal entry in one day — something quick and done in an hour or so. Now I’m not so strict with myself. Here’s a watercolor and ink entry I worked on over several days. I started it on May 19 while watching the hibiscus start to curl up as evening set in. I’ve done it every evening when it’s possible and not raining. Such a delight to watch them fold up at night.
Pencil, ink, then watercolor and a bit of acrylic.
I’m the kind person who looks at a detail and the rest of the world will disappear — so I’m figuring out ways to reflect that in my art.
Then again, this year my commitment is to learn not to restrict myself, just follow inspiration. Sometimes it leads to a floating hibiscus bloom.
