Playing around with water colour

This is just a quick sketch that I painted in water colour. Then I used some of my pens to add some detail. Just thought I'd post is as it was a bit different than my acrylic. I feel so keen to create at the moment but it's like I have a bit of a block, perhaps Illustration Friday will give me another kick start for the weekend?

I've also been working on some pendants I shall take a photo of them this weekend so I can show you what I've been much to do so little time, I wish I didn't need to sleep so I could sit up and work on my art while everyone is in bed and it's nice and quiet!!

I've often thought how great it would be if we didn't have to sleep, lol!

I like your watercolored girl! If you have a block, this is the time to experiment, and play around with your supplies. Have you mixed watercolors, ink, and acrylic? I find acrylic is good for fixing those 'mistakes'.
