This project was inspired by Jamie Avery’s week 1 lesson on pen and inks. Well, I used ink like paints and very little pen work. This painting in my journal is based on a photo that I took on New Year’s Eve day when my family and I walked on a trail in Joaquin Miller Park in Oakland, CA. Second-generation redwoods inhabit the park, and as we started out, I was thinking how happy I was to be in my “happy place.”
These next photos show the progression of my work on this project.
