This summer while I was in France I had a really limited amount of art supplies with me, mainly just colored pencils and a very small set of watercolor paints. So I did a lot of sketching, but I did do this one painting, using watercolors. I don't use watercolors very often, so it was challenging! I thought it mostly turned out pretty good, although I think I could have done far better if I had been at home with my full arsenal of supplies at my disposal. The subject of the painting is Madrigal, as I imagine her, a character from the excellent novel, "Daughter of Smoke and Bone", by Laini Taylor. On a side note, I highly recommend the book, it is one of the most addictive books I have read in the past few years.
