Summer Soul II by pbird12 Summer Soul II by pbird12
This is a re-creation of one of the very first portraits I ever drew. There's about 18 months between each version, I wanted to play the 'am I any better game' :happybounce:

I chose to re-draw this one because the original drawing turned out to be pretty important to me; it's where my friend Annika *JustABeautifulDream and I began chatting about drawing something together and the beginnings of :icondraw-along: was born :happybounce:

Materials:
Hot Pressed Watercolour - 8"x9" (ish)
Graphite
Polychromos
Tortillion
Eraser
Gel Pen
Time: I allowed myself 5 hours, to keep the time similar to the first attempt. I would have preferred 10 hours, but that would have been pretty pointless.

Thank you very much for having a look :heart:

Beautiful, Paula! What a huge improvement from the original drawing. That's a really good idea to go back and redraw one of your old drawings. I don't even have the heart to go back to looking at my old work because they're so barf-worthy haha.
