Pre-Painted Pages

Under the inspiration of Roz's before and after journals, I used some of Golden's acryllic fluid ink and painted some swirls and edges on my sketchbook pages. After a nice dinner and settling in for the night, I thought I'd present myself to one of these pages and see what I could sketch. It was pretty dark outside and I wasn't excited about anything on my work table, so I randomly opened one of the many seed catalogues that have graced my mailbox lately and ended up sketching a composite of various daylillies.

It's a different sensation seeing something on the page before adding my sketch ... I like the way this turned out. I used a sepia Micron .05.
