Ink, watercolor, and watercolor pencils on watercolor ACEO blank. (Might be Arches paper, might be Strathmore). Followed, as I keep forgetting, by a terrible scanner that has no idea about yellows. Or blues. **sigh!**
Not thrilled with this–should he have some of his hair visible? How could I better the lights? That really is a creamy almost-yellow tablecloth… I do not know how to draw/paint napkin rings yet…. Much to learn! Finished? Maybe. As far as I can work with it? I think so. (I just added more watercolor pencil work, some of which stayed dry. I tried to deepen the shadows. PLEASE, all comments, critiques, suggestions are WELCOME!)

So I had a tiny scrap of matboard. Well, small anyway — about 1 inch across and 1.5 inches tall. Roughly.
Well, colored pencils aren’t the tool with the finest resolution but hey.
I think I’ll put this on stamps. I scanned it at 600 dpi, so I can print it …but honestly, it would look ridiculous on anything larger! Really!
