Stars and Stripes
I've inaugurated the watercolour book which I showed off in the post just before this one. I wanted to paint something without a plan, to watch the colours and learn from them, to get away from what I usually do. I began with a star and let it grow.
A Watercolour Book
Someone gave me a pretty wedding invitation; the paisley motif on the front inspired me to make a little watercolour book:
Coptic binding, with eyelets
The inner cover paper was cut from wrapping paper
The paper is Fabriano Artistico 140 lb. watercolour paper. The book is 6 1/2" x 9"
