I've been using an old sketchbook I have, a Fabriano's Artist's Journal, filled with lovely colored papers. At 4 1/2" x 6 1/2", it's smaller than my normal sketchbooks, so sketches go faster. Colored pencil, pen, gouache. Colors really glow on this paper---what fun!
I'm about to complete the first half of my 2006 art plan and will do a mid-year assessment on Friday. Hope you'll check in!
