I don´t often paint in my art-journal. The last 2-3 times have actually been while visiting an artist friend in Kristiansand. Painting with friends is one of my favorite things to do! There are different things that occupy my mind while playing in my journal. The first girl I´m painting with a quite thick brush and playing with skin-tones.
The second girl is layered. first painted text, then some illustrations and patterns, before finally moving on to the face itself.
Everytime I paint, I think “I have to do this more often!” I need to practice this and that and the other. And it´s fun. Just to loose yourself in the practice. Without being too worried about the result. Looking at the photos of the pages I see so many things that are “wrong”, but I try not to be too critical while painting, it is, after all, a rehearsal or practice book.
