Good Thoughts~

I've been sick the last week and am just starting to feel better.  I thought I would start a new series of drawings with good thoughts...

The face was part of a piece that I watercolored first and then did not care for.  I wanted to keep the face so I cut it out and applied it to new paper. I like the look of partial watercolor so even mistakes can be good!   Todays' lesson- don't throw anything out!
  After coloring I like to go back and use either a white jelly roll pen or white acrylic to highlight special areas.  Here you can see the eye.
 When you make flowers or other objects, casting a shadow around them
with soft greys or blue helps them to stand out.
