A new illustration entitled "Céleste"
is now available as a print over on my Etsy store
as a mixed media/print piece.
It is essentially a print wjich I have then
drawn on top of with pencil,
and also painted onto using silver paint.
The result is that no two pieces will ever be exactly alike.
I like to work this way as i like to have the basic lines form which to draw
from, but also be able to add more definition and subtlety
which I feel are things that can often be lost when a
drawing is transferred to digital media.
My printer, although good, never gives me the full range of tones I want.
I want to be able to experiment and play around with a drawing
and not be too precious with it.
Scanning it and reproducing it gives me this freedom to play.
