Nature notes...


I completed binding my new sketchbook today..
with an additional painting of
the orange Water Lily for its cover..


working with crackle paste


mixing and glazing with colors,



The signatures were made from cold press watercolor paper
(I love the feel of watercolor paper actually  :)) )

Hope you're having a nice weekend..
