ink, pencil, gesso

Life has been challenging lately. So has getting anything done on my free, public internet connection. All the same, I've mostly been art-journaling. I started painting over old ink sketches with gesso and then drawing/writing on them (above.) I really enjoy it but the ink sketches were all on thin cheap, paper which makes the pages look thin and cheap. The below pieces are ink sketches I did on both sides of a thick printmaking paper that I am going to cut into page sizes (it is quite large right now) and then gesso. I am hoping it will be more fun to work with.

I like these! The top one, especially -- that's heart-stopping.
