Lantern Faery

Tonight I finished a drawing, I’m glad it’s finished with pen but I’m not sure if it’s needing colour. I might be brief with this post as I’m going to sleep on it and have a think about whether I feel brave enough to put some watercolour paint on it. Once I do that, it’s not coming off (to state the obvious) so I’m on the fence about it.

The Raven drawing I feel definitely was more successful because of the colour (even if it was just blue and sepia). I had done the watercolour before the pen though, so I was feeling a lot better about the addition of colour.

So… I think I’ll have a moment to ponder and maybe come back to it with fresh eyes.

Here it is in stages, although I don’t think it had many drastic changes.

and finished…

Hello! I am an artist who is very keen on ink pens and collaging with old text paper, sometimes colour might creep in but usually I stick with monochrome. Learning about everything by trial and error, slightly anxious but big capacity to laugh.
