Book of Faces

I bought a Strathmore Visual Journal this weekend. I’m going to use it for painting faces. Probably the whimsical and mixed media ones but not the more realistic ones. I have another sketchbook I do those in, or I do them on watercolor paper. This new journal is 9″x12″ and has heavy paper with a nice texture. I really like it. I did a page on it Saturday night and it held up well to multiple layers of gesso, watercolor crayon, acrylic paint and collage.

The text reads, ” Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. ~ Theodore Roosevelt
