Daily Art Practice: Visual Painting Journal – New Pages

Studio cat at my visual journal painting table.

I last posted pages from my Visual Journal on January 25, 2019, and unbelievably, I have continued with my daily practice of painting every day, focusing on color, composition, and making random marks. I have found several benefits from this daily practice. 1) It gets me into my studio. Even though I sometimes think I’ll just pop in to paint a page, I often linger and work on other projects.  2) Because these daily pages aren’t precious or for anything other than fun and practice, I work looser and with more freedom than when I’m painting for a show or a deadline. 3) My practice pages have become inspiration for my paintings in oil and cold wax.

Wall of 12×12 inch oil and cold wax works in progress with photocopies of my journal pages above.

Here’s a smattering of my pages from the past couple of months:
