Art Journaling and music


 I kept up my journal, even when I couldn't connect to the net, but I'm not going to play catch up with photos.  Today, I did two sketches, though, one in ink from an idea I had and a view of my village in charcoal.



I would have liked to ink in the water even more, but S woke up from her nap and the ink and calligraphy nib had to be put away.

 

I took S for a walk in the stroller to the lock down the canal. I've been meaning to sketch the village from this vantage for quite a while and am glad to have finally gotten around to it.  My perspective is way off, so I'll have to go back and try again. Have to hurry, though; exactly two weeks until our move. :D  

Here I am, posting about Sancerre, but the song below came up while doing so, reminding me of life in Mayotte, and before I was finished typing and before the song ended, Julien called to tell me that he just got through speaking to a Mahorais in Le Havre.


(the song is not Mahorais, but it was popular in Mayotte while we lived there)

Lala ha unono. (sleep well--my favorite phrase to say to my neighbors back in the day.)

Okay, this sick-pea thing is getting sliiiiiightly disturbing. I drew a landscape, somewhat similar to yours, yesterday.

Hopefully, if you want to put a sketch on the walls, my next one will be better. :P

What was that you said about being our own worst critics? :) They are both lovely!

hehe. Thanks. However, I went back to the spot, taking my camera along, and with said camera's help, I figured out what I was doing; I was putting too wide of a view on paper. If my paper would have been turned horizontally, it would have been better.

I have photos to try from now to get a better, true perspective. :D

Are you art journaling?
