mobiusant - coloured

I want to re-do this one. I was really pleased with the subject, but not so much with my execution. Didn't feel like doing hands or feet because I'm lazy like that. Hopefully my study on hands over the weekend will encourage me to attempt it again but proper.
My drafting table is not set up yet, so I got to lay a watercolour base while trying to fight away a kitten and two children, precariously balancing my brushes atop the kitchen table. It wasn't a really great environment to attempt wet-washes. It fell short.
The shadowy grey bits are where the paper buckled due to yet another indifference. I promise I'll try harder next time. . . ?
