A bit of a sequence to this artwork with some less-than-steller iPhone photos.
The drawing began with red colored pencil--Verithin Poppy in this case. White highlights added with a Signo white gel pen. Crosshatching was next.
The finished ink drawing is lightly sprayed with acrylic gloss coating, then color added with transparent acrylic inks.
I like the way the red pencil shows in the final work, and also how the acrylic washes
soften the india ink lines.
(A follow-up to last week's post: Still experimenting with zero Facebook (outside of keeping up with local events). Continue to feel much lighter and have slept incredibly well this past week. That may be a coincidence, but nonetheless I have no desire to go back to Fb. Not posting on Instagram, but am keeping up with those I follow. IG doesn't seem to bug me as much as other social media, maybe because it's mostly photos of art.)
Thanks for the visit!
