Poor Little Girl-Part II

While my son was napping today, I was finally able to break out my watercolors. I inked the paper last night, so my lines were already down. I don't know if that had anything to do with the way I approached my little experiment today, but I was definitely more relaxed about it.

I figured since I was just "playing around" then the results didn't matter. I didn't need to try to protect my line work, since it was waterproof. I didn't need to look like a super-perfect watercolorist, since I was experimenting. I didn't need to worry about the outcome, since I hadn't planned to stick this in my portfolio. In other words, I was free to create. Here's the result:Nice things can happen when you don't put restrictions on yourself! I'm happy with how this turned out, and even happier that when I scanned it in the colors stayed true for the most part. I'm definitely going to be drawing more people, and seeing where waterproof ink and watercolor can take me.


  1. This is so great! Wow! I'm so impressed!!! I love her expression, the colors, the lines, everything! You're great at drawing people, and at watercolor!!!

  2. I'm crossing my fingers that this wasn't a fluke! I kinda scared myself with this one. :)

  3. Nice Diandra...
