Drawing Blue!

Last night was another excellent session at AFK’s Drink and Draw!  It seems like ages since I was last there.  We’ve had a break for the holidays and then last week I went but left as I felt poorly (ate something earlier in the day I should not have done!).    Drawing Amber as Sailor Mercury was lots of fun!  I loved the blue hair and her creative poses.

Starting with the 2 minute poses

5 minutes, with color added after, watercolor pencils

Then I switched to the better paper and watercolors:  Strathmore Series 500 Mixed Media

Ink wasn’t quite dry and bled a little
