Watercolour: People Will Love You Art Journal Page

Sometimes I like to randomly draw in my journal. It's a bit of a risk, since I'm still not very good at it and the paper does *not* allow for erasing. Nor does the Stabilo pencil that I use in my journal. So, I do take kind of a risk, but it's not so bad sometimes. Here's what I came up with the other day.

But as you can read, I forgot to gesso first and once I had to do it over him the Stabilo pencil did not appreciate that. I then had to find a way to cover the mess I made of his face, so I took my Neocolour 2s to it to paint over the mistakes.

I was really happy with how his eyes turned out. I did like it a lot before I added water, but there were patchy spots, so I figured I had to at least give it a cursory going-over with the brush. Once I did that, I had to think about the background and the quote.

I have a board on Pinterest for inspirational quotes and since I drew this man without a plan I had a hard time picking a quote for him. He's smirking, kind of cheeky, so what could possibly go well with him? I thought this quote wasn't bad, since he doesn't seem like he cares much what anyone thinks of him. And I try to fill my books with good quotes and advice. Because, really, there's not a whole lot you can do about the opinion of others except bare it.

I hope you like this page, and that you have a wonderful day!
