Charles Dickens was born 200 years ago today (or yesterday, depending on which part of the world you are reading this in). He is buried in Poet’s Corner of the Westminster Abbey cemetery. One burial plot holds a man who filled our world with stories of Nicholas Nikleby, the Artful Dodger and Tiny Tim. Today’s journal page wishes Charles Dickens a Happy Birthday and to think, he did it without blogging and without an internet connection. I started todays journal page with Dickens in mind but was unhappy with it until I added the marker lines. Then it all became clearer and the vision that I began with appeared before me. I am trying to use some different colours as I am noticing that some of the colours in my 16 pan set are getting used far more often than the others. Time to look at the watercolour tubes I think! Suggestions are welcome on your favourite watercolour brands! By the way, my Dickens favourite: A Tale of Two Cities. Enjoy, rediscover a Dickens novel and keep making art.
