I will be posting some of my pictures from my most current sketchbook. The sketchbook is a Cavallini Medieval Journal with paper from the Amalfi coast. I used it for a journal for awhile. The paper was horrible when written on with fountain pens. I finally gave up on the journal. I came back last summer and tried watercolors on it. I did not want to waste the 2/3rd's of the remaining pages. It took light washes rather well. It does not like erasing or liquid mask, though. So, it did pose some challenges. The pomegranate was a pretty good challenge both to draw and to paint.
I went out and bought a new scanner and I hope the pictures come out a little more true to life.
