We have some beautiful ponds in Lyons, Oregon. Each summer the shores of the ponds are alive with Foxgloves and each summer I sketch the Foxgloves. This summer was no exception. I captured them with pen sketch on my evening walk. Watercolor continues to be hit and miss with me. Last night it was a miss. Montana markers and collage to the rescue. I was amazed the pen sketch showed through the marker. The watercolor did not! That selfie did a great job of covering up my watercolor!
The page was pretty bright so the corresponding page needed something similar to balance the spread. I pulled out all the shots with the next page. A selfie on graph paper with a Pentel brush pen. Montana marker, distressed inks, stencils and collage were added.
