Getting ready for Visual exercise 3

 This is the new sketch book I made last night. The covers are made from paste paper I made with Marcella with my "smack". I have used the smack (called a smack because that is the noise it makes) on fabric with thickened dyes and paint as well. When I get around to using various tools, I will show more examples of this very favorite tool of mine


160 pages of  (student grade) watercolor paper which will take wet media well

An old sketchbook with plenty of room left but I wanted to keep all of my new work in one place.

"Tray" dyeing

             This would be nice in an landscape piece. Very woodsy, marshy.
