Do you paint backgrounds in your art journal ahead of time? Most mixed media artists advise it - that way the white page isn't so daunting when you sit down to create.
Recently I had a desire but not much time or inspiration so I watercolored several pages in my current journal. Adding salt while it dries adds a fun texture.
I'd never drawn a feather before and was thrilled that it turned out as well as it did. Part of me wishes I had left it well enough alone (I say that pretty often) but in the moment I felt yellow ochre in my feather painting. Glad I captured a pic before I added that part though. . .
