Travel preparations

Jo's watercolor journal

New journal

Lately I’ve been sketching people in the new journal I’m taking on my trip, drawing the people at an outdoor cafe in Iowa City and pretending I am in Rouen, as sort of a warmup. I’m drawing what I see so that later I can compose a painting. I have a little palette I take with me to add local color right away using the water from my water bottle.

I got my sewing machine out and angled all my 1990’s skirts, added some chic tops, and I am ready for Paris!
