Peacock Studies

What annoys me about watercolour painting is that is loses my lines. I have really got stuck into the continuous-line drawing, when I finish the drawing on the watercolour paper thinking it would make a nice painting — it doesn’t. It masks the drawing underneath and it is so frustrating.

So I tried something a little simpler, using sugar paper, graphite and pen I was able to showcase my lines and reveal my peacock — and I'm happy with it!
