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.
