[11x14 - graphite, watercolor, COPIC marker, color pencil on sketchbook paper + PS/CS3]
This was one of the most uncooperative sheets of paper I've had to paint on. It was 'thirsty' to the point frustration - there was almost no way to manipulate the watercolor as I normally would. Definitely an exercise in patience.
A ton of fun to do, a lot of learning, a lot of, "Oh, sh*t. Well, how do I recover from that?" I was gritting my teeth the entire time. I think may have even bitten the side of my mouth.
Anyway, there it is.
