I typically never draw humans or human characteristics, but this project was nothing short of pure fun. This mixed media drawing contains colored pencil and watercolors. The watercolors were laid on the paper first before the colored pencils were layered on top. I used Prismacolor colored pencils in order to shade in the eye portion. Using these pencils made it a lot more easier to blend the color together with the watercolor. Before completing this work of art I was clueless about how smooth the colors get when colored pencils and watercolors are blended together. The colors were chosen based on my love for space and galaxies. The eye on the left side reflects the galaxy within it, while the opposite eye reflects a human. My thought behind this piece was to reflect our existence in the universe. It is purely amazing that we all exist in this galaxy and on this planet. To me, that is a huge blessing.
