Marvelous. And gouache is just opaque watercolor.

Re: Jamie's Fabriano Venezia Journal

Rainy, JTMB, Seejay, Debby and Ed, thank you very much for your comments.

I went out to plein air paint with my friend Virginia the other day. It was supposed to be 50 degrees and sunny, but it was freezing cold and overcast! We ended up sketching from our warm cars on a side street instead, then going out to lunch.

Re: Jamie's Fabriano Venezia Journal

This turned out well, maybe your car should be your winter plein air studio, like Joans?

Re: Jamie's Fabriano Venezia Journal

Jamie - Wonderful work on the WDE sketches. I love that you used your car studio too! That's a great sketch of the corner of the street. We'll have to do a sketching day together when it gets a bit warmer.

Re: Jamie's Fabriano Venezia Journal

nice one

And I agree - the car is a definite necessity as a studio in the winter!

Re: Jamie's Fabriano Venezia Journal

beautiful painting, Jamie. . . I love the colors in the building (so vibrant, reminds me of my pink/red dog ink test love the brickwork and the colors on that and the little part of your journal cover peeking on the side, for a second I thought it was the side of another building and then remembered. . .

Do you and Joan know each other in person!? and how cool if you guys did a get together or sketchcrawl

Re: Jamie's Fabriano Venezia Journal

Margo, I love car painting, but like it even better when the weather is good enough to actually be outside!

Joan, that definitely sounds like a plan! Would you like to meet me at the Bronx Zoo soon? Perhaps on the next non-weekend day over 55 degrees? I've been wanting to go back there for ages. Last sketching trip there was about three years ago!

Debby and Viv...thank you!

Rainy, Joan and I have been talking about getting together for years, but just haven't yet found the right time. We live a couple of hours apart. The paper in this book is so nicely sized that the watercolors sparkle. (The Raffine is like that too, don't you think?)

Jamie

Very Nice street corner. Love the composition and the colour and there is lots of interest.

Re: Jamie's Fabriano Venezia Journal

John and Elain, thank you so much!

This is ink and wash:


Then I couldn't resist throwing some watercolor on it too!


My husband thinks I ruined it with the color, but I like it better. Going to play more with this idea today.

Jamie

Re: Jamie's Fabriano Venezia Journal

I'm with you, Jamie, I think the color gives it more pop. But the plain wash is pretty elegant too, all that purple coming out of the plain black ink! Lovely, both versions.

Re: Jamie's Fabriano Venezia Journal

I like the BOTH. . . hard to decide. I really love monochrome paintings, but the color does give it pop. Lovely drawing/wash/painting whichever way I look at it! Nice work.

Re: Jamie's Fabriano Venezia Journal

Both are stunning Jamie!

Question, on that Goulet ink club how much ink do you actually get in the samples? Is it enough to fill a cartridge and write with? I haven't signed up yet, but will if there is enough ink to actually play with. Thanks
