Illustration: Lady

I did manage to grab a few hours to paint her up. It is Saturday, after all; I should be able to do something that isn't work!

This was great fun, and I'm pleased with the result – pretty loose, which is something I keep trying to attempt, but am not so good at actually managing. I managed not to get hung up on details tonight. =) 

To save time, I adjusted my sketch in Photoshop, and printed it out on 300gsm watercolour paper (We're using an Epson printer, so the ink doesn't run), so that I didn't have to trace or refine pencil lines or anything. Much quicker. So basically I had a very pleasant colouring-in session.

  1. Very nice, I like the mood of this. :) Hooray for artwork that it's work!

  2. I just noticed your new header. I loved the old one but this one is also very cute, very personal(ized).
