Day 6: drippy girl

Had fun with watercolors today. Drew the girl in graphite, painted some details in watercolor and then just dripped some watercolor paint over the whole page. Which is not so easy I discovered. I always wonder how  artists manage to get these wonderful drips on their paintings. My paint won't drip, or only in big fat lumps. Which is not what I'm after. So then I start spraying the page with water, but then everything mixes and gets all blurry, which is not what I want either.

Anyway, on this girl I kinda liked the blurry effect. It makes it soft and dreamy looking, which is okay for me I guess.


I'm off to bed now, see you tomorrow!
