FLYING MOLESKINS FOR Irit AND Dana

These are two pieces I have done for the current sketchbook exchange, called "The Flying Moleskins".I am participating in with 12 other artists.

Irit had as her theme "local places"-I went about this with, What if my Christ visited my Cluttered room?



What if Christ came into my clutter? Gouache, 2010

Dana had as her theme "dreams"-I went about this with, another day-dreaming piece of my boy Josh when he was younger.



Day Dreaming II, Gouache, 2010

All these pieces were done in gouache on mount-board.


I am currently in Bath at the moment, on my 2nd Marathon. I haven't forgotten to post lessons I have learnt from my 1st Marathon. That will be my next post with the day by day action pictures following.

I worked with gouache a long time ago but I love how you are using it here. Your strokes are so good. and it makes the lights sparkle even more because of your background.
These 2 pieces are really full of emotions. I love them
