|June and July journal pages, de atramentis document inks|
It has been a fantastic summer with little rain and long, sunny days. And although I've been out on the bicycle and at my art table less with the great weather; I have kept up my journal pages and calligraphy practice through the summer.

I rearranged my art tables so I could have a table dedicated to calligraphy and writing correspondence. I found the cutest mini asian tea set to use for my inks and water reservoir. You can see it in the photo below on the bottom-left corner.

This morning I did a quick sketch of the leaves and fern that I keep on my table. The gold flecks in J. Herbin's Caroube de Chrypre ink really came through and are noticeable when viewing at certain angles. At other angles, it is a rich, earthy brown. The word summer was written with another of my favorite colors: J. Herbin Emerald de Chivor.
I can already feel summer welcoming Autumn. The weather has a crisper, lighter feel to it.
