watercolour wooden doll

Especially pleased with this watercolour. Another wooden doll
 I am now doing these drawings from my imagination, no reference, which is where I am happiest. The layering of washes is challenging, and I stall out sometimes as I gather the courage to lay down another layer. I am still drawing with a black Derwent coloursoft. It is a relief to draw without dragging graphite across the page with the side of my hand, and I enjoying the richness of the black.
I can see room for adding on to this painting, so don't be surprised if you see it again in a new incarnation.

peace in oneself
peace in the world
