How many souls I may devour to become a dragonfly? And fly high...
Down here I hardly see the world through water lilies.

This is a drawing inspired by a song by the amazing singer and songwriter Priscilla Hernández: www.priscillahernandez.com

You can listen to the song, and see her live here [link]

Tools: Coloured pencils over an A3 sized blue paper sheet, my hands, and the wonderful songs of Priscilla's CD.

Cute lily pads and pleasant arrangement overall.

Over all I have had bad experiences with colored pencils. This looks like you painted it with water-colours! very good!

I try to use smooth paper (almost like printing paper) instead of coarse paper. Coarse paper works best if you are trying to paint (but you still did a really REALLY good job)

:-) Irene Fernandez replies: "Thanks. The paper was coarse becauase it was blue colored.. I wanted to do the drawing on cloured paper. I liked it that way anyway!"
