Art Journal Watercolor Portrait

Watercolor and art journaling works well together.

It’s extremely portable and yields colorful results.

I made this image while half-sitting, half-reclining on the sofa with a toothache. It’s a holiday weekend so I have to wait for the dentist office to open in a couple of days. I have enough energy to work in an art journal but not to work sitting up at my work desk.

Watercolor that is in a travel set is a perfect partner for an art journal. I use a water brush and skip the water container.

Even when I feel 100% I use the Sakura watercolors and water brush in my art journal. Add a pencil or two, a paper towel and your portable art studio is ready.
