I want to thank Kathy at Backyard Bird Nerd once again for inspiring me with a lovely photo of a cardinal. I almost didn’t add color to this, but I did think to take a photo beforehand this time. 🙂
What do you think? Better with, or without? It’s nice when we can look back at an image, or see the stages along the way. I often go into a creative trance and forget to take photos during the process. I love color, but sometimes those pen lines look fine as is, and the color can be a bit much. I’d love to hear your thoughts. I believe this was Graphitint and Inktense watercolor pencil, and a General’s sketch and wash (water-soluble graphite) pencil. With Copic 0.1 mm fineliner underneath.
And I hope we are all joining the birds today in whistling a happy Friday tune! Peace and pigskins (that’s football for my friends outside the States) to all!
