Some weeks ago I overheard a conversation between two teachers talking about aquarel pencils and I thought that's nice. Than last week while I was in the Netherlands (Holland) I found a store in my hometown with more supplies than I could carry. So while I was browsing around I found this set of aquarel pencils.
While I was holding this box with pencils the only thing I could think of was dresses. I know, I am a little strange sometimes.
Made some sketches of different dresses during the holiday and as soon as I got home I made these two dresses in aquarel pencil.
But no this wasn't what I felt in the store. So yesterday I started sketching again and this little lady appeared.
So I took my aquarel pencils and colouring pencils out and started colouring which I love to do.
The small details in the face are pencil, the eyes and mouth are coloured with colouring pencils and the rest is coloured with aquarel pencils and later brushed with a little bit of water.
You still can see the sketch beneath the colouring.
I like the result because I used different pencils and each of them gave a different touch to this little lady which made her more "alive".
Did you start with the song? I hope you have because Susan Boyle is sending shivers down my spine and let butterflies fly in my stomach for the last couple of days. Maybe we can all realize that talent comes in many forms and it doesn't matter what age you are or how you look like it is talent that counts.
Have a day filled with your talent.
