I have painted in watercolor for many years but never started a watercolor journal. The purpose of a journal is to make quick sketches of places and things you want to remember and possibly use for future paintings. Watercolor is a great medium for adding color to those sketches.
While we were traveling to Florida in June for vacation, I decided to pass the time by sketching these cherries that had caught my attention in a photograph. This was my first attempt at painting "on the go". Some people paint things they pass along the highway. My memory is not that good--a photo in front of my face works better. Even with a few jerks and bumps, there were no major mishaps and I was pleased with my experiment in "travel painting". I thoroughly enjoyed it. This may become a habit.
