Taking it on the road

In part two of beta testing my Stillman & Birn Beta sketchbook, I took it on the road to try it out in my car studio. Once again it passed the test. I can pile on pigment and load up the washes, and the thick paper stays flat. I even tried some wet-in-wet on the distant trees. And the true test for watercolour: I can easily lift out areas that were too dark like in some of the far fence posts. So far so good with this book.

    Excellent!!! You have done some great work in the “car studio” (which, if I recall correctly, is a phrase that I can take credit for).

  2. It looks like the sketchbook is working great, because your work is beautiful Shari.

    Oh my! Sigh… This is sooo beautiful. It reminds me of a special spot I see from time to time — the fence, birdhouse, fields. Thank you for this enchanting sketch snd for the instructive update on the paper/sketchbook.
