April 30 Entry in Roz's 2016 Fake Journal

Above: 10 x 16 inch cold press watercolor board (Arches).
This sketch was made with a Pentel Colorbrush (Sepia). They are
always watersoluble. Watercolor washes were added, then
gouache was added as a final layer. Click on the image to view an
enlargement. (Some rubberstamp ink as well of course.)
The final "page" in my 2016 fake journal. My character makes it home despite the flooding and she continues her experiments with cold press watercolor board, using a Pentel Colorbrush and watercolor and gouache.

I will be posting my wrap-up of my 2016 International Fake Journal Month project either tomorrow or in a couple days. I hope you will check back to find out how the project went for me and what my original goals were.

If you would like to view all the entries in my 2016 fake journal please go to the category list for this blog and select "Roz's 2016 Fake Journal." All the entries (which are page entries for each day of the project will load in a list. You can scroll down to the first entry and then scroll back up to see each entry in order, stopping to click on a listing if you would like to see an enlargement of the image.
