Sunny street

Sunny street, originally uploaded by apple-pine.

Moleskine sketchbook paper is not welcoming my watercolor attempts. As if it's saying - ok - you poured THIS here - now - deal with it!
This is where I started missing my watercolor paper choices... but I learned some things too - adding some gouache, pen and ink - helps to balance things out after watercolor flood. And being patient but not too slow helps too ;)

I found that some unexpected things come out of watercoloring in a moleskine - your sketch is a perfect example. I really like it.
I myself have a new moleskine, still wrapped, waiting for me. Mmmmm...

I am sure you'll have a lot of fun with the book! Try lots of pencils - colored pencils, crayons etc. I re-invented them with this paper! :)
