Emily for JKPP

It has been a few weeks since I've painted or drawn anything for Julia Kay's Portrait Party on Flickr's photo sharing site. I indulged in a new small watercolor sketchbook from Strathmore Windpower, with nice 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper today, and wanted to try it out.  This young woman provided several photos, and I chose this sort of Sleeping Beauty pose because I liked the way her hair spread out horizontally; I thought it would fit the format of the sketchbook nicely. It looks a bit washed out in this scan, but is richer in person.

Love the pose ... I wish my life drawing classes would allow for such contemplative-looking poses.
The billowing hair is a beautiful design element!
