Pen, ink, watercolor. Winter inspired ink drawing for the cold days that have dominated our December.
This drawing is based on one of my student assistants. It is a relatively quick portrait sketch.
The fun part is working with a model that has large expressive-eyes. The addition of a “fur” neck-warmer seemed to balance out the drawing and help it feel finished.
In the end, I decided to add watercolor because I goofed up a few of the ink strokes and I wanted another element to minimize the importance of the wayward marks!
(the inked area is about 12 x 18 inches)
