Stabilo Sister

 This portrait is from a tutorial by Karen Campbell of the Awesome Art School.

First I sketched a girl in a reference photo using a normal pencil and then I went over the lines using a Stabilo All pencil. I followed that up with a wet paint brush. I found it difficult to control the water and where to put the darks and lights. I used a white Sharpie watercolor marker for the highlights.

Although this portrait looks nothing like the reference photo, I learned a lot and plan to try another!
