This weekend I decided to bust out the watercolour paints. I haven’t used watercolours in more years than I can remember, but I felt like getting into it anyway. When I uncovered one of my old sketch pads, I discovered a pencil outline of a character from an old WIP novel that I had all but forgotten about. I decided that since the drawing was there waiting for me, it would be rude not to colour it, so that’s what I did.
Here’s a quick look at Sabriet, queen of the Shadow People, from the fire-worshiping city of Ka’thor.
The most interesting part of this painting was working out how to get the fabric to look transparent. As I said, I’m not very practiced with watercolours. But, it was fun all the same. It was also nice to be reminded of this character. I hope one day to actually finish this story, but until then, you’ll have to make do with random paintings and bits of artwork.
