This is not done, but this version may be as done as it ever gets. Yesterday, using this digital version as reference, I started over on bristol paper. I’m going to try to do it in pencil and pen with some watercolors thrown in to liven it up. I have the habit of getting things to tightly rendered and losing some of the image’s energy. Case in point, the little girl in the pink dress in the center of the drawing (she’s looks like she’s made of plastic). Also, because I’m drawing on a bamboo tablet while looking at my computer screen, I’m losing that flow of drawing directly on my image. I’m not complaining (too loudly), but a Cintiq tablet is going on my Christmas list this year.
Check back with me next Wednesday. I’m hoping to have a finished version of “CELEBRATION”.
