Arrival and Departure – Art Journal

I included in this art journal spread one of the Artist Almanac Calendar pages featuring my Two Tallest painting of both the Jersey City and New York City skylines. Although the calendar and original painting are no longer available, you can still pick up a giclee print of the work and enjoy the scene :)

The background here was just some loose layering of leftover acrylic paints with a brayer. Then I used a pencil into the wet paint to create some intersecting scribbles. I used the same colors again to fill in some of those shapes that appeared, with a brush and with a finger- it was a fun and freeing to play.

Here are some of the supplies I used:
