When my kids were small, I didn’t have much time to sketch. So instead, I noted colors in my journal, then translated them into simple horizontal lines during downtime. This practice became a foundation for my color education. Hundreds of small paintings later, these color studies not only illustrate how I register the world but are paintings in their own right.
I grew up surrounded by journalists, then married one, so I love watching reporters whip out their steno pads and start taking notes. I decided my husband’s run-of-the-mill steno pads needed a design elevation. The size is ideal for tucking into your tote or backpack. This notebook has neutral stripes inspired by the fall and winter colors of Woody Creek, Colorado.
Notebook pages are printed with soy ink on a thick 70# off-white paper. Flexible double-thick front cover with a durable book board back cover.
