I’ve spent all day working on this, and a pleasurable day it has been.
When it came to choosing a quote to hand letter on the image, this one by Ralph Waldo Emerson seemed perfect to me.
To colour my drawing I used my Chameleon Marker pens. I haven’t used alcohol markers in quite a while. There was a point when I’d coloured a lot of the outline art in and really didn’t like the colours I’d used and nearly gave up on it.
However, I persevered in adding the patterns and highlights and it’s worked out quite nicely I think, even with a not very good photo of the image.
