Going with the flow

I ordered new watercolor pads in the 8″ x 8″ size I love. Somehow I ended up with 12″ x 12″. Of course I could return them, but I thought maybe I’d give it a try. Maybe I’m ready for a change? The 8″ x  8″ was starting to seem small and a bit restrictive.

This morning I started doing my normal ink work in my sketchbook, intent on filling the page with starfish. After one starfish, I stopped and grabbed the 12″ x 12″. So much more room to repeat shapes! So far I’ve painted some of the starfish and parts of the sandy background.

I’m loving the 12″ x 12″! The final product will be such a substantial size. It’s funny how we work in a certain way, develop habits, but one thing can set us on a new path, new work habits.
