Although I went back to teaching today (I’m fortunate to be blessed with great students!), I still had the better part of the day to
play work on my illustrations. My goal was to experiment with India ink and my nib pen for the illustration outline. I was also going for more freedom in my coloring approach. In the pencil sketch (which I worked on yesterday) I focused on elongating the figure even more than I usually do since I wanted to emphasize her grace and bring out the overall glamour in the composition.
What a luxury to be able to experiment and even REDO an illustration – in this case, the version below is my 2nd attempt…
I’m fired up to do more illustrations using the techniques above, but first I’ll be turning my attention to finishing a 5-illustration custom project.
See you back here soon!
