Life drawing and watercolor pencils on kraft paper
I took along some watercolor pencils to a life drawing session last night but I only brought Kraft paper - DOH! If you've ever worked on kraft paper before, you know it's super thin and very prone to air wrinkles. It doesn't take much to ruin the stuff, it's maybe half a step up from newsprint. Needless to say, I didn't get to wet my watercolor pencil bits. Well, I did try it with one but it was a soggy mess of ugly so that was my one and only experiment with kraft paper and watercolor pencils. Next time I'll bring the proper paper. But the colors still look pretty! I decided to work in colored pencil for the body and just add shades of color on the outside. These are all 5-15 minute poses.
Linking up to PPF! :)
