29 FACES - DAY 24

I used my new Sailor fountain pen with the caligraphy nib.  It came with an ink cartridge, which I used.  I found out the hard way that the ink isn't waterproof.

On this sketch, I started out using my watercolors and the ink just ran into the color, changing it to a black version of itself.  I thought maybe the ink just wasn't dry, so I gave it some time.  But, it still was running and ruining the sketch.  I used colored pencils an the rest of it, but unfortunately those 'smile lines' are much too dark and I can't do anything about it.  Lesson learned.  

This was drawn from a photo credited to Mark Harrison/Seattle Times that was on the front page of the February 24, 2014 Seattle Times.
