A watercolor background was sitting in my journal longing for something else.
Using a Stabilo marks all pencil (everyone should have one!) I sketched out this face.
With a q-tip dipped in water I started to wet the pencil marks and it became a back and forth dance between the water and Stabilo.
The whites of her eyes were added with a liquitex paint pen. A sharpie would work just as well or even a dab of white acrylic.
As always my work never feels quite done until I add some words.
This reminded me of how much I love watercolor and miss drawing faces the old fashioned way off of the iPad. ;)
