I've done some more experimenting and playing with some stamps, stencils, and crayons. It's good to know what kinds of marks you can make, how effective a stencil will be. I want to know what the watercolor crayons do when they are wet once and then wet again. What does a half a stencil look like, can I use just a portion and still have an interesting design? Is it more interesting? What does it look like upside down? These are some of the questions I ask myself as I work in my sketchbook. I can go back and find what I've used and how it will look before I commit to it on a painting. I'm very enthused about keeping an experimental sketchbook.

I started watercolor painting earnestly in 1991 after I moved to Florida. My husband and I are retired, and we are both artists. We both have works displayed  at the Wildchild Gallery in Matlacha Florida.
