    Thanks for that video on journaling, Kathryn. I always have sketchbooks with me and often the pages contain oil pastel sketches — and sometimes watercolor–of scenes done from memory as well as from direct observation. Often I will paint plein air using oils and then, later, recall the scene using different medium in my journal. This helps in training memory/observation and also allows changing the composition, perhaps introducing more gestural elements, to be used in a studio painting of the same scene.

  • Thanks for the reminder. A year ago I decided to downsize and move from a large 3300 sq. ft. house with many staircases to a new construction townhouse, 1800 sq. ft., all on one floor and with 2 studio rooms. Had to get rid of 50% of what I owned. I moved in at the end of Dec. and am just now getting back to my oil painting. I feel very hesitant when painting, clearly thinking too much. Haven’t found my flow yet. I think working in my sketchbook each day is a great suggestion!

      Your sketchbook is a great way to keep your head in the game until you are ready to pick up a brush! Moving can be a lot!!!
