This squiggle was an experiment in the use of hot press watercolor paper with markers and color pencils. The paper is so smooth the color pencil works itself into a ball under the point of the pencil until it drops off and leaves a smudge of color. The effect looks interesting, but it is not exactly what I want and I will file the information for use later. In the meantime, I will look at some other paper and save the Arches hot press for watercolor.
I like the position of the boy and the look of motion. He is definitely one of my favorites.
