Don't Copy Me
I possess a weird quality when it comes to drawing. It's called self torture. This watercolor painting was done in a Moleskine sketchbook. It is a sketchbook not meant for watercolor paints. In fact, if you try to use them, it won't work. The paper will reject it. Does that stop me? No. I wrestle, fight, punch, scream and kick the damn book with my paintbrush until I finally succeed. It's a nightmare but I do it anyway because I have some screws loose. The problem is, other artists always write to me saying that they can't paint in moleskine sketchbooks like I do. Is there a trick I use? Is it really a different kind of book that I am using? This line of questioning is endless. I like helping fellow artists out, so I try to answer everyone's questions. The simple fact is, I do something no other artist should. PLEASE don't try this at home. Get yourself some kind of watercolor sketchbook and do it in there. Thank you.
