Art journaling is a passion of mine, and Atlanta artist Marilynn Brandenburger is a very talented water-colorist and art journaler. Forstall Art Supply here in Birmingham hosted a workshop tonight (and ongoing Saturday) taught by Marilynn, and I was fortunate enough to catch wind of it and sign up at the last-minute.
Picking up some water-color tips and exploring a bit tighter style than I usually have in my journals was tons of fun. Here’s the sketch we worked on tonight. The whole class (about 10 women) sketched the same berries, and as always, it’s so much fun to see the variations that arise from a room full of artistic people.
Usually my journals have no particular theme, they are a witness to my daily life… whatever is happening at the time. I feel inspired now, however, to start a separate journal with a particular theme….. now, hmmm…. what shall it be?
