Another beautiful image. I especially admire the expressive lines showing the movement of the water.

What size are these pages?

Best,
Kim

Hi Kim,
I use a pocket size watercolor moleskine, about 3 1/2 x 5. I'm new using the moleskines. This one has perforated pages so they lay a bit flatter than the other pocketbook moleskine. I bought a packet of 3, thinking they were the same. Disadvantage is not being able to paint across two pages. Someone had given me the accordian moleskines which I used for the Monterey sketches. The paper is very uncooperative to watercolors. The paint beads up or soaks in spotty. Not meant for watercolors.

Thanks for enjoying these sketches. aiko
