Time for reflection
It has been a perfect holiday weekend; cold, grey, lots of time for quiet reflection. I even found a few hours to get into my studio to add some details (mainly dark areas) to my journal pages from the train trip we all took last week. The portraits were done in pencil, I added the watercolor and ink after the initial sketching. The spread with the text in the mountains used watercolor as well as watercolor pencils; the train sketch is in pen and watercolors. The final sketch of our conductor was from memory. I was so intrigued with her stories (including getting her hat stolen!) and her wonderful humor; she was the perfect person to help us end the wild adventure! I have used everything on this page: watercolor, chalks, ink & colored pencils. I wish I had asked her name! I love going back over my travel journal pages as it helps to re-live the memories.
