So in a grand romantic gesture, Danielle and I decided to make a mixed playlist for one another. I recommended this after seeing her collection of mixed CD's in her car. We both have similar music taste, so it seemed like a fun activity.
While she was listening to my playlist I did a quick sketch of her. I think this watercolor came out very nice. I went back to more classic techniques blocking in everything with a pencil instead of a watercolor pencil. In most every watercolor I've posted here, I started them with a Burnt Sienna watercolor pencil to block in everything. It leads to a rich color in the finished painting but sometimes it becomes a little dominate. I really am going to try and be more sparing in my initial drawings.
