Looking Back

Girl in Bonnet
8" x 7"
Came across this drawing I did years ago and decided to redraw it with pastels over the original watercolor.  Wish I had made a copy of the original layer, but I wasn't happy with it.   The drawing paper had almost no tooth and didn't hold pastel very well.  I never use fixative because it changes the color, and although it was tempting to spray this one, I resisted.  It would have been easier to keep the original and start fresh.   Lesson learned.
