I think what is the most challenging thing for me is how much colors change when they dry on this paper... This is watercolor version, and below are gouache and marker versions.

Drawing Straw Flowers

August 2011: Strawflowers


  1. Which one is closest to what you were seeing, Nina? And yes, that does take some getting used to. Watercolors often lighten, gouache often gets darker. Eeep!

  2. I think gouache one (middle) is closest - I will take a photo with the next iteration :)

  3. I'll look forward to it! And to getting your interview up, I've been a bit nuts lately, but I got it and thank you!

  4. I am so happy to have found your two sites. As an artist I have always admired and been interested in learning more about journaling. I am just beginning to do more and not be so intimidated by all of lovely work done by artist like yourself. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. Blessings, Laurie
