Re: Kay's Junk Journal

Thank you very much, Gary!

Here is today's junky offering, a classy Santa, image courtesy Li (lisilk) over in AMAE forum for the current weekend drawing event. I sketched in hard charcoal pencil over gesso, then added acrylics and three snowflakes collaged. Also I used peach marker for skin tones and watercolor for eyes.

Great job, I like the idea of using charcoal.

Re: Kay's Junk Journal

Yes, I'm enjoying the freedom of a junky journal in that you don't have to be so perfect and precise. Thanks Robert, Helen, and Joan.

Thanks EP! That's great praise coming from you whom I consider a master sketcher.

Re: Kay's Junk Journal

No, you're the crown princess of the sketch world

Last night I stayed up till midnight sketching in mechanical pencil another outlaw, Sam Bass, who came to a sad end when the law caught up with him and shot him at age 27. A notorious train and stagecoach bandit, he and his buddy are credited with the largest haul ever of $60K after robbing the Gold Train of Union Pacific in the 1800s.

Re: Kay's Junk Journal

Great sketch and a colorful character. I love that mustache. Guess that's not a profession with a good retirement benefit, but very cool story! Well rendered!

Re: Kay's Junk Journal

Thanks EP and Robert! Yes, I put one or two coats white gesso on the paper. I did buy some aging ink sprays by Tim Holtz yesterday at Michael's, so will experiment with that scrapbooking product.

Here is last night's work.


Nobody in particular, just my junk journal version in charcoal of what a rustler would be doing; light shaped cattle in background. Probably in the dead of night he'd be up to no good stealing what is not his. See more outlaws in new Southwest/Western challenge HERE

Re: Kay's Junk Journal


Today's entry in charcoal with Tim Holtz distress ink spray over the book page; the bottle said it was walnut ink and already had a large bottle of that so could've saved me $$$ had I known. At any rate, it is none other than my hero Clint Eastwood as the outlaw Josey Wales movie character...been a lifetime fan since his young cowboy days playing Rowdy Yates on Rawhide, Dirty Harry, etc.
