Sketching at the Beach

I recently won a Stillman & Birn hardbound Beta Series journal with 180# paper and have decided to dedicate it to water related images.

The paper is sized and I'm enjoying how watercolors lay on the surface - almost like hot press paper. There is a little bit of tooth to the surface but the Micron 01 pen still glides along.

I'm one happy camper :)


  1. I love what you did with the text on the rim. Sigh...the pic brings back memories of summerweather. Over here we are still waiting for that (for 2 years now) .....so thanks for sharing :-)

    1. Thanks, Krien! Lordy, 2 years since summer weather?? Pray tell, where are you?

  2. Love this page PJ! Well done. The journal sounds intriguing.

  3. Lovely! I really like how you write your notes around the edges framing the painting...very cute.
