watercolors and faces…

“Do the best you can until you know better.  Then when you know better,  do better.” ~ Maya Angelou~

We have been snowed in since last Friday.  It’s been very cold for Arkansas but I heard the temperatures will be on an upward trend by the middle of the week.

This piece is watercolor background on watercolor paper.  I let it dry completely and did some pen work on it.  I started to use Caran d’Ache crayons to highlight some areas but the pen and crayons didn’t mix very well.   I had fun making circles 🙂

NOTE:  I linked this to Paint Party Friday

    Wow, those watercolour and pencil pictures are completely amazing. Looks like Klimt finally got the hang of colour.
