I thought I’d share another piece from my Moleskine watercolor sketchbook. This time, it’s of Hilda Otejekker and yes, it’s another bikini image.
Hilda has a huge pool in her mansion. She and Richie use it almost everyday. Sometimes she likes to swim. Other times, Hilda likes to just recline at the side or peacefully float on the water. (Hey, who doesn’t?)
The water and Hilda’s inflatable pool mat there are diluted paint. I used Derwent brand watercolor and Inktense pencils but pressed lightly on them. The pink pool inflatable toy Hilda is reclining on? That’s actually red Inktense pencil – I just used a light pressure and water to dilute the pigment for the pinkish color. Everything else was enhanced with pencil and a Uniball pen.
