Before I wrap all of summer I wanted to share what I call the last of the lake art! This piece was done from a photo I took from our wee balcony at our Paris hotel, almost one year ago. At night it was so pretty because you could see the tower twinkle!
Below is a three part experiment. I wondered if I could repair a very bad watercolor I had done six or seven years ago and kept only so I could use the back of the page for mixing paint. It's very "flat." I'm wondered -- did I do this in watercolor pencil? I see more sketch lines that never really blended as well and that sometimes happens with the pencils.
First, I added a lot of color and enhanced the reflections on the water. It already looked much better.
To finished, I added some details with Micron pen. It made everything stand out better. Unfortunately, I couldn't do much with the beach towel, but as a practice piece, I was relatively happy.
This little sparrow has a slightly demented look in its eye! I think the eye is too big but was at a point where "erasing" and correction was impossible. I'll have to try again! But the rest I'm pretty happy with.
And I leave you with another portrait of my girl.
What a model!
