Gardening Day

A perfect day....gardening and sketching!! Lots of fun! Uniball vision pen, w/ Yarka watercolors in the moleskine(large). I have a little trouble with the Yarkas sticking to the opposite page when I close the book. I've remedied that by spraying the pages lightly with Krylon clear matt acrylic spray. Only problem is when I'm out and about sketching. I don't want to drag along a can of spray. I'm thinking that I might be able to bring a small jar of acrylic varnish and brush that on.

Wonderful, Jan! I'll have to check out Yarka watercolors. I'd never heard of them before you mentioned the brand. They're wonderfully vivid! I did a bit of gardening today, too, but it was hotter and sunnier than your idyllic-looking setting!

HI Laura,
Well, the triple threat hazy, hot and humid is on its way here too!
