The Many Shades of Blue


Many Shades of BlueThe Many Shades of Blue RHS As an alternative & to create a more economical option for our Paper Trading members, Paper Traders have run a 'tip-in journal' concurrently to the Round Robin Journal this year.  The term 'tip-in' is actually a traditional book binding term, primarily refering to repairing or restoring books – meaning: 

'a method for incorporating loose pages — a detached leaf, replacement page, errata sheet, or other insert — into a bound volume.'

Silly me, I was already participating in the RR, then joined the 'tip-in' project.  Whilst I find the freedom of creating single unattached pages a little less intimidating than recieving a living art treasure each month in the mail – coming up with something for someone else's journal every second week has been a big ask & I have fallen behind a little.  These pages were made for Bekki's journal…. Blue is………… inviting participating artists' response to the colour blue.  I had great fun with this – finding the gradation of any colour in some from or other mesmarizing.  I started out with Neocolour II watercolour crayons on guache to get this composition going – then I added 'textured hatching' with my tech pen & then H2o highlights.  It has a kind of zentangle look about it, & it was fun to do.
