Fabric Doll in Watercolor - Stillman & Birn Epsilon

While watching (actually listening) to TV tonight, I did this pen and ink with watercolor of a fabric broom doll I made years ago.  Done in the Stillman & Birn Epsilon sketchbook.

With this one I decided to push the limits on using watercolor.  Quite a pleasant surprise in how the paper handled my application of wet in wet.

Pilot Prera (F) with Lexington Gray ink

#8 Round

W&N pigments - Winsor Blue (R), Raw Sienna, Bt Sienna, Perm Aliz Crimson.

Green was mixed with WB(R) plus Bt Sienna

Looking at this on screen, if I were to do this again, I think I would incorporate some of the pink into the background to go with the dress.

Also, I would have liked for some pink bleed into the background along an edge or two of the dress but I didn't think of that at the time.  The background was put in well after the main subject was dry.  An after thought actually.
