Dark Chocolate Bear

I was going for a very dark coco bear, but instead... you can't even see the face of the bear. I'm playing around with water color using distress inks. If I was using my copics, I could of made it lighter. I tried lifting off some of the paint with just a wet brush, but the color turned grayish. Oh well... what can ya do.



Catching up with challenges and this one is for PBSC and The Pixie Cottage.

Thanks for bloggin' by!

It is always fun to try a new coloring medium. I am giving the distress inks a try too. It will certainly take some getting use to. You did a fab job. Thanks for joining us this week at the Pixie Cottage.
