Creating Challenge Day 254--Art Journal Page Progress

A couple weeks ago I sketched a face on a previously made art journal background. Today I added some color to the face using my Derwent Inktense Watercolor Pencils (I LOVE these pencils and really want to use them more than I do). I was surprised when the water activated the black Stabilo pencil I'd used to outline the woman's face. It originally muddied the colors I was trying to use, but as I gained experience with how the water and pencil interacted, I leveraged it to enhance the drawing. I like the result, and look forward to finishing this page soon.
