To start my new 5.5″ x 3.5″ Moleskine Sketchbook I did an illustration type drawing. I reloaded the paper in it with Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper. I didn’t hav enough to make a full book so I put in some stonehenge paper for use with colored pencils which should be fun.

This is a Red Crowned Crane and are popular in Japan during the winter. After rebinding the sketchbook I noticed the first page had the Fabriano watermark so a colored it in and later put in this Japanese Red Crowned Crane
