I mixed a bit of printmaking into my watercolor journal. The bird was carved on a Speedball printing block, using my Speedball carving tools. I really haven't worked much with printmaking, but it has been a process that I have wanted to experiment with for some time. I first did a test print on a piece of scrap paper before printing in my journal.
After the ink dried from the printing process, I painted the bird in watercolors. Once the paint was dry, I used some of my Copic markers to add in a bit more detail.
