Autumn Experimentation

Before we get to the new year which, surprisingly is less than two weeks away, I want to share a few of my sketchbook experiments from the fall. 

Back when I started this journal in September I added a few fold out pages here and there. This is my first from September 8th. (I usually date my pages but I missed this one.)

I went to a local farm with a few artist friends and as they spread out to paint the rolling landscape I chose to capture the barn. The silo would fit perfectly on the left fold up once the page was expanded. 

I positioned myself so the truck would be hidden when the page was closed.

I added some fancy lettering and continued the grass across the base to complete the page. 

Page size and shape presents different challenges to my sense of composition. I have a few other fold out experiments to share so stay tuned!

  1. Love the layout and your lettering is even more awesome than usual! My Christmas present to me this year is an Expeditionary Art palette and the DS basic 6 paints. Wow! Painting the next 3 days…hohoho 🙂

    • Wow is right Bobbie! You’ll love your new palette. I’m curious about the 6 paints, I’ll have to google them. 2016 has flown… we’ll get together and catch up real soon. Happy New Year!
