Hi.

I'm Cait Sherwood, a mixed-media painter who works into art journals.

I make art from the trash of the art I made before.

Week 17/18: Sketchbooks

Week 17/18: Sketchbooks

The past couple weeks I've just been fitting in the art making when I can, so it's been a lot of sketchbook work.  A lot of these pages were made in the car on the way to King's Dominion.  I just drew with my watercolor pencils as we drove and later I added more painted details. 

I also used these new-to-me watercolor crayons (Marabu Art Crayons).  I liked them a lot, they have a nice plastic cover so your hands stay cleaner and they have a super-slick quality when you draw, it almost felt like makeup or water or something.  I usually use Neocolor Watercolor Crayons which are waxier.  I think I still like those a little better but probably just because I am used to them.  They are less slick/slippery and I like the color options better.

After all that sketchbook work I realized I needed to get back to painting (on canvas/panels) for my 100 day project.  I felt uninspired but did it anyway, and made some interesting progress on a 14x14 inch wood panel:

That's all for now.
