Over the years I have had folks inquiring about what tools/mediums I use in my visual journals. Thought I would share a bit, basically I start drawing with a Faber-Castell PITT artist pen (usually no pencil, just jumping in feet first with the ink), then I apply color with my Winsor & Newton watercolor traveling kit, and finally I punch up colors and add details with Prisma Color Pencils.
Expressive Watercolor Washes. Abstraction. Composition. Shapes (geo-morphic). Colors (harmonies and contrasts). Texture. Layering. Juxtapositioning. (See Gude.) Tie thematically into felt qualities of an experience, music, dancing, dreaming... Look at Aboriginal Dreamings (dot paintings), Miriam Shapiro (I'm Dancing as Fast as I can), and Miro or Kandinsky. Watercolor painting fun, but is much harder to do well than you think.
1 part vegetable oil 2 parts baking soda Stir together until paste is formed. Then, use a paper towel or your fingers to apply. Work the mixture into the residue until it releases from the surface.Wash off with soap and warm water.
