journal page

I had hoped to do a lot of painting while I was in Grand Marais, but landscapes continue to frustrate me. I kept taking a crack at them (the only way to improve); and I kept doing studies in my journal. I need a week of alone time to really focus on landscapes, however. Ultimately I'm always grateful for my journal which is so portable. When I set up to do landscapes I had a huge board with stretched paper, a large palette of fresh watercolors, huge brushes, a water jar, and paper towels. That's a lot to keep track of while you balance on volcanic rocks and try to capture the fleeting levels of light; and ward off inquisitive Golden Retrievers.
