Here's the Christmas card I ended up making from my original graphite drawing.
It's printed on my six-colour Epson in duotone red - as I figured the black and white was a bit too macabre for Christmas! Little robin got a good reception from all who received him, even by my Nan who I thought wouldn't be too enamored by the plight of the wormy!
I also had a bit of a play around combining coloured pencil and watercolour in a couple of new pieces. Usually for things like this I outline in pen, like my Anima Femina drawings, but I like the quality that the pencil outline gave here, much softer - maybe more forgiving...
Below are some initial sketches, progress and completed shots. Photos are a bit naff - can't be bothered to scan them right now.
Materials are Derwent Coloursoft pencils and Dr PH Martins watercolours, on Somerset printmaking paper.
EDIT: "Kiss Me Slow"
Pop Revolution Gallery, Mason, OH. But I'm in two minds whether to submit it or not. I think I like it too much to part with it; this has always been my problem, it's like sending your babies out into the world alone! Eeeek, what should I do?
