Round 2 - page 1 Aya rosen
Or rather, page half... I still have one project (at least) I was supposed to finish before this, but I couldn't help myself anymore, and so today, when Ned, my husband were making work phone calls at home, I went to my favorite coffee shop and worked on this.
It feels very strange to draw or paint in someone else's book. I felt like i broke into a stranger's house and eat their food from their fridge or slept on their bed.
After giving a shot to the moleskin sketchbook in this, rather then the watercolor version which I usually get, I have to say, for me, watercolor is definitely the way to go for me. This paper is coated and it doesn't take watercolor very well, I manage ot make it work, but had to use a lot more paint and less water, and some of the subtelties are lost.
I might have to use markers for the next pages.
