The project I would like to do is a weekly sunday adventure strip for the web. The trick is I want to pencil, and paint it in traditional mediums. Each strip would be on a 16"x 20" board. And all the lettering would be done on the board. That could be a nice looking original piece of artwork, provided I could pull it off.

Jungle Girl color sketch
I have a project that I would like to do when I have some time. (Hmm, that was a punch line without a joke.) So from time to time I pick up various papers and try painting something on them to test the absorbency and the texture. This is one of those tests. I sketched it out on a 7" x 8" board with a Prismacolor Verithin Terra Cotta color pencil and then went in with water color. The paper just soaked up the water so quickly there wasn't much time to move the color or blend. That won't work at all. On a separate piece I tried out my ink on it and that holds up nicely. The search continues for the right paper though. Over all this took about an hour or a little less.
