Kelly has been having really good naps on the bed lately, ever since she rediscovered just how nice the bed is. I drew this in watercolor pencil then brushed water over it, then experimented with wetting the brush and brushing it on the pencil to pick up the pigment, worked well. The paper is an older watercolor paper that is heavily textured, and it didn’t quite all fit on my scanner bed at one time (disappointing) so there are some shadows around the edge but I kind of like the effect.
In any case, Kelly certainly enjoyed her nap!
