Susan said...

Hi Kathy - I just found your blog and became your new follower, I love your work!

This is so sweet and adorable - I also love your technique, I see you work in colored pencils - I do too, but haven't tried mixing them with watercolor yet. I looks like the Betty's background is watercolor?

Everything is blended together so beautifully and the details - her shield, the cracks in her sword, I love it! Cheers, Susan

the enigma said...

oh you certainly have to brave to make such a beautiful background texture with watercolor! well done.

kylie said...

What a cutie, a brave little warrior!

kathy hare said...

Thanks for all of your kind comments! x

Hello Susan, I used watercolour to create the background before colouring Betty with pencil.. I don't often use watercolour but I am hoping to play around with it a bit more as I love the effects it creates.

Megan Coyle said...

I love her makeshift armor. And the drawing on her shield is a wonderful detail.
