brown haired girl art journal page

I wanted to draw tonight and felt like drawing a girl. 

She was fun. I started by sketching her out. 

Then I outlined her in black Faber-Castell Pitt pens. 

I didn’t like the darker black lines after I was done so I knew I’d have to make her hair darker. I used my Prima Watercolour pencil crayons, Derwent Inktense, and Caran d’Arche Neocolor II wax pastels to colour her in. 

I love how the red looked as I added water. 

I then added a darker layer of red with a Carem Silks Acrylic glaze. 

Finally, I added the torn rice papers as a border with Golden matte medium. 

Touch ups to the white parts were done with Liquitex professional gesso.
