I actually didn't notice it at first, only after filling quite a few pages. My observation skills are unsurpassed, haha!
Again, I don't quite know how to describe these pages. They're slightly grey and porous.
My pencils don't make strong enough marks on this paper, so I thought it best to use watercolour.
It's not as tricky to work with as the first few pages in the sketchbook (or maybe I have just changed my approach), but I have to be very careful with the amount of water I use, and wait for the paper to dry correctly before putting more detailed lines.
I also have to put something under each page when I work on this paper, otherwise the pages below get easily stained, like on this portrait.
|I guess it makes the portrait more interesting...|
|Once again, I got the name wrong... She's Sylvie, not Chantal!|
|She's much lovelier in reality. Very elegant.|
I might give this technique another try later on, when I get tired of using only watercolour
|I think I'll use her picture again. I feel like great things can be done with it.|
|Looks like his hand is disconnected from the rest of his body...|
Thanks again, Marisa, for the wonderful present! ^_ ^
