Keeping up


with Every Day in May. And no, I didn't forget. Just got too tired to post last night after the day got away from me. To make up for the lack of posting yesterday, here are two very quick sketches done with Neocolor II crayons and Inktense watercolor pencils in my hand.book journal. Just to see what would happen. Reminded me of John Cage when he talked about "purposeless play."

The only structure
which permits of natural activity is one so
flexible as not to be a structure; I write
in order to hear; never do I hear and
then write what I hear. Inspiration is not
a special occasion.

very nice colours! they look so vibrant :)

did you use them both on the same page and then wet them? or something different? :)

Nice work...lovely colors!

Ann said...

Thanks :)
Jennifer, yep, I started with the neocolor II and wet that, then went back with inktense. Except I'm not so patient and didn't wait til it was completely dry first, just kept scribbling and adding water :)

Crayons! They are always so bright but at the same time, it's really hardddd to draw with crayons T___T
You did it so well Ann and made it seems so easy :)
I don't think i could replicate my pencil sketches with crayons.. someday I might try that :D

Nice little pieces. I actually like the pencil strokes you show.

Thanks for reminding me to do my posting. It's just a little inchy but I tend to forget and they are part of a group I'm in.

I tend to let the days pile up and not show any of the stuff I've gotten done, also, but hopefully it will slow down soon and we'll see how it all goes.

Inspiration isn't a special occasion is a good reminder.

Love the vivid colors and bright airy feel... especially in the bottom piece.
