Material used are: Noodler’s Heart of Darkness ink (my favourite because it’s so dark!), rotring pens, Winsor and Newton paint, and my current most loved paper, Fabriano hot pressed.
The addition of the mouse is interesting – I actually have two more pieces I’m working on that are similar. There’s a bit mishmash with the addition of the biological drawing to a very stylized piece, and it intentionally doesn’t mesh 100% . I rather like it this way :)
I don’t have any works in progress at the moment but below is a WIP shot and finished product of a pet portrait commission that I absolutely loved working on recently.
Done in gouache and watercolour pencils.
Not only was it the first chicken I’ve ever drawn in my adult life, but it also struck close to home. One of my beloved childhood pets was a chicken, named Chicken. (I wasn’t particularly creative with names when I was a child!)
