Lately, I’ve been working towards more freedom in my illustrations…with the secret hope that someday (in another 40 years?) I’ll be able to create the illustrations from the get-go in pen.
Yesterday when I was working on my “illustration du jour” I was just putting in the finishing touches when I went a little heavy-handed with one of my pens and – in my eyes – ruined the illustration. So I started again. The result is that I now have two illustrations that appear very similar, but are still quite different. Funny what the flick of a pen can do!
My husband surprised me with his preference; however, since I’m still on the fence over which one I prefer, I’d love to hear your feedback.
Do you prefer….
