This is the first spread in the new larger journal...that I've drawn. All the newness and vast amounts of whitespace were too intimidating so I pasted stuff and wrote notes about it on the first few pages. The splashes of color seemed to kickstart my creativity.
This eagle was on a piece of mail from the DAV today. I liked how he looked so I decided to paint him with my own kinda style - thick black ink lines.
It was so much fun to be able to draw big and paint big!
I see I'm still avoiding the valley in this journal too, just in a much larger way.
