This is an old picture (well a little) which I have just colored to be used as a card. It is very nerve wracking to colour these! The moleskines are not perfect for watercolour as they have an ever so slightly waxy finish… But the big fear is totally screwing up the picture. Unlike watercolour paper where you can lift the colour off again a bit once it’s down, on this surface it’s pretty much here to stay. I decided to do the entire picture as I thought that just colouring the girl would not be enough. The focus is shared here between her and her environment. We need the warmth of the lamps and the cool of outside… the wood panelling… colour on the other patrons to link them to the inside. It came out alright in the end, I think!
