After Monday’s long post, just a short post, with another painting on drawing paper.
I just finished the journal with this quick sketch and now I get to start a new one! It’s sitting on the drawing table waiting.
Below is a detail of the scan showing an area at the temple on the left where I didn’t wait long enough to go in with another glaze of watercolor. The damp paper doesn’t like that and will pill (as both Paul and I mentioned in Monday’s post.) But I think this is a small price to pay for learning a little patience! And I love the great browns and purples playing for attention in the hair. All leftover paint mixes that were lounging about on my palette after I finished another painting.
Some people create the most marvelous negative space with their ears and their sculptural hair.
