okay, let's start off with a few disclaimers concerning my sketch today (whistling). Firstly, if the foot looks quite distorted and strange, it's not the drawing -- it's just the way my foot is! heh. That's due to 20 years of squishing them into tight-fitting high heels before I came to my senses.
Secondly, this is the first time I'm using watercolour pencils. A few lifetimes ago I dabbled in oils and acrylics (and loved them, so will try again one of these days) but watercolour had a technique all of its own that seemed too difficult so I never dared try. As it is, I'm taking baby steps here ... the pencils first, then one of these days I'll take a deep breath and go for "real" water colour.
Hmmm is that it? All excuses done with? sigh. Oh, it's also the first time I'm using a moleskine watercolour sketch book as opposed to my normal moleskine. I liked it and cannot blame any peculiarities in the drawing below to its use.
