I use traditional methods of working and my preferred is pen and ink. I also use some pencils to add detail.
Here's how the picture developed:
First this piece began as a sketch in my sketchbook
Which made it onto layout paper with different elements over three sheets. Then onto the lightbox to create one picture
As I said in my last post I do like a good colour swatch!
On to colouring in!
Detail of leaves - an oak tree
A silver birch and the oak again. This process of painting each leaf did take a long time but I was pleased with the outcome.
