August 5 – I have decided to practice with watercolors in order to get better at them.  Right now I do sketches and coloring of pen sketches.  I’d like to do full blown watercolor paintings.  I have done a few, but I’d like to do more.  I figured if I had a small watercolor sketchbook, I’d do more playing.  So I made this from some 9 x 12 watercolor pages cut in half and folded.  The cover is made from the back of the pad the pages came from.  The fish was an afterthought.  I had extra stickers and slapped one on.  Those same fish are in my shower 🙂
