A sea dragon, by the name of Cortez, takes a relaxing swim through the ocean.  He is not concerned about much of anything and is quite content.  He sat as just his head for ages in my sketchbook.  I finally sat down and finished him!  I used Derwent Watercolour Pencils on 140 lb Cotman Water Colour Paper. I'm liking this watercolor pencil thing a lot. I wasn't a watercolor fan for a long time (me doing it not others artwork).  I guess I just had a lousy art teacher when I first learned to use watercolors.  I am much happier now that I'm getting the hang of it.

*First Comment Curtsey* This is wonderful! It feels peaceful and you've done a great job with the watercolors!

:-) Tamar R. Beecher replies: "Thank you very much. I am no longer afraid of watercolors, at least with the pencils. I still have to work with real watercolors more though."
