Once I was satisfied with the dry look of the colored pencils I started to add water, but very little at a time. After the paper dried I went over it again with the dry watercolor pencils to build up more color or to change it. The last photo is the finished work with it's frame.
As part of a wedding gift I decided to do a watercolor portrait of my husband's cousin and his fiance. I took photos of the progress from the sketch to the finished piece. I used watercolor pencils because I'm a little rusty with watercolors and this gave me more control in the drawing stages.

Here are a few more drawings from the last figure drawing class I went to. So far they have been fun and relaxing. And the best part is I get to spend some time with friends while drawing and on some nights go out for a drink afterwards.

I decided to redraw the Girl with the Thorn hair idea. I'm looking at more reference for hands,face and thorns to get a better idea of how I want to execute my idea. The composition is changing and so is the woman's face. I think once I have the final drawing down I will add some color to it. It will be posted soon.

This is a work in progress of a girl with a thorned hair prickling her finger. I'm still trying to work on the look of the torns which is her hair and the hands. I find hands are really hard to draw especially since I don't draw them often.
