No really, she’s a sweet girl and we love her to pieces. This was another attempt at fur/animal hair. I took some in process photos on this one, so you could see at least some of the stages. I think I will call this done, even though I could put a background on it.
Noses are quite funny to draw! This was a fun way to spend the time waiting at a doctor’s appointment for a friend. Got into a neat discussion about sketching with a patient who was also waiting. You can see I have her photo printed in color and black and white. With her, there isn’t a whole lot of difference!
This is the first layer of watercolor, using Indigo (a really dark blue), burnt sienna, and yellow ochre. In my original sketch on the watercolor paper, I had drawn in hair that hung over one eye, but I somehow lost it in the layers of paint and then real life got in the way, I picked it up to finish it about 10 days later, and it completely slipped my mind. Once the darks of the eyes are down, I didn’t want to mess with trying to lift them to get that hair. No doubt I will be painting the little poppet again… no worries.
