Beach Day - Sketchbook Painting

I've been playing around with creating impressions from a site I'm referencing for my current project using collagraphs. The print process can be a little unpredictable and whilst some prints turned out great, others were less successful.

I wanted to preserve some of the texture treasures that happened and incorporate them into a new piece. I usually do these in my sketchbook, but thought I'd try working on a piece of mixed media paper instead for this one. I think I prefer the smooth surface of my sketchbook pages and wondered about gessoing and sanding these sheets of paper first for a similar surface....anyway that's something to try for next time!

Enjoy this one - it's a hot summer here in Australia at the time of posting this and the beach vibe is all around at the moment!
