Try to Fail or…In my Art Journal Today



“It’s easier to succeed if you’re trying to fail” – Philip Guston

I love using some of my left over color chips on my palette – I peel it of and apply it with Gel Medium – gives texture and interesting little color fields in the art journal. Texture in the background was achieved with heavy gesso through punchinella and then I painted over and applied again a thinner layer of gesso here and there to lighten areas up.



Here are the supplies I used for this page:


Have a wonderful day

    Cosmetic sponges have changed the way that I play in my art journal.
