Pencil, Ink... Paint Still to Come!

      It was a long weekend, and the work got did. I started on the (so far) LARGEST piece for "the show," as I've come to call it. It's just around four feet by two-and-a-half-ish, and is going to be quite pretty, I think. Here are some process pictures of the beginning and middle. The end, the paint, comes tomorrow... and the next day, and the next. The first step is always the longest. the drawings take hours, and sometimes, like this one, days.

       The ink come next, in a painting like this. 'Red' mixed with 'Brown' concocted this tone. I love the names of inks... they're so concrete. This stage took maybe a full four hours... and the fun is yet to come!

       Check back in a few days for a finished image!
