Today's Fake Journal Entry
I forgot to do my colour swatches. I don't think they would have been as vibrant as the sketch itself anyway. I'm still sticking to my goal - PITT pen + gouache (no Pentel brush pen today). But this time, like the last two days, I applied an acrylic paint background before painting the scene. Today's background was red, and I'm amazed at how it enhanced the colours.
I think I will apply more acrylic backgrounds to the next few pages!
Today's entry is an extract from a poem, Raised Bog, by Cathy Leonard.
My centre is not bottomless as you supposed.And soon I will no longer surprise youwith my treasure trove, my black butter,my bog men, my great Irish elk-Your history and mine.
