PDCC186 - Touch of Nectarine


This girl was inspired by the colors from the current Play Date Cafe Challenge of - Black, White and Nectarine.
I'm particularly proud of her since she is painted directly into my ledger journal - I've only ever painted a girl directly into my journal one other time.   
I'm not a confident drawer (a person who draws - not part of a dresser) so I invariably draw/sketch on another piece of paper and then glue it in - I'm trying to be a bit braver!
A quick wash of gesso helped to keep the ledger writing in the background while not completely whiting it out. 

The splash of color was added with a pastel.
