Still working in art journal. Trying to hone my craft with the dry media,i.e., colored pencil. The paper has to be texturized, roughed up to catch the pencil. Thinking of diluting the clear gesso or sanding it after applying. Straight gesso gives the moleskine journal too much tooth, then the graphite becomes too stark. Will post some journal entries this weekend. Back to work and school, art takes a back seat unfortunately.
