New Face

5"x11", watercolors, oil pastels, gouache, pencil on old ledger page
I had not intended to do another one right away but I am stuck right now on the plaster work so...she happened!
Since I was not seriously engaged I picked a sheet from a very old ledger and started to draw...soon it was too late and I did not want to stop. The paper was just about disintegrating but mostly the edges so I kept on.....I painted a coat of matte medium to give it some protection and soon enough I noticed that it had stuck to the white paper underneath, oh well.
I love the burnt sienna color of this ledger, just gorgeous.
"Liatris" will be ephemeral!
Beautiful autumn day today.
