Water-coloured pages





"notable excerpts from a few of my watercolor journals, on the pages of old books."

Inspiring art from There is Sun in my Eyes. Follow the link to check out the rest of the set. Oh how I wish I could draw like that! All my journal pages would be in frames instead of notebooks, haha.

  1. This is so beautiful! I would love to have these framed! :)

    I tried watercolor once, but I gave up before I even started.

    I wish I knew how to draw and paint like this! :)

  2. I've always wanted to draw in another book, but I fear that I'd ruin a book over making creative work.

  15. Ok so this is nice. But, I've seen it done before, differently - better. Look into the book - A Humument. Here's the official website -

    http://humument.com/

    Not only did this guy create art on an existing Victorian novel, he created another complete story within the story. I especially like p.27 and p.326 in the gallery, and this image he did:

    My very favorite is here:

    It's on p.10 of the 4th revised version. You can see a slideshow of the whole thing at Tom Phillips' website.
