8" x 11"

Original Watercolor
Not for sale
I have started making my own sketchbooks (after reading Cathy Johnson's book "Creating Nature In Watercolor" in which she mentions doing this.) This little painting was one of the first I painted in this new sketchbook I made from 90 lb Fabriano Artistico. I was able to find this lighter weight paper in the Jerry's Artarama catalogue and it is a nice weight for watercolor sketchbooks. It's a nice change to be able to sit down with one of these sketchbooks in my lap and finish a painting in one sitting. I am so used to working on studio paintings for a week at a time.
