Did this from life with fountain pen in about three hours sitting at a corner outdoor table at a Sunergos cafe. Finished a few days later with modest amounts of watercolor and inkwash, since I thought the line work was good enough to be the main feature (and the leaves hadn’t come out yet). The dozen or so FB art groups I’ve been in have made it very clear to me that people tend to like color pieces a lot more than black and white ones, but I wanted to stand out and I also thought using color the way I did here clarified the drawing in a nice way.
10 x 13 inches, fountain pen, ink wash and watercolor pencil, 2019. Print is a matted, mounted, signed 600 dpi color print on white acid-free cardstock with half-inch borders, in a limited run of fifty. I only use permanent, pigment-based HP inks which meet the ISO 11798 fade-resistance standard.
