Strawberry Spring

Art: Strawberry Spring by Artist Shelly Bedsaul
I decided to explore my feminine side once more and admit that I like pink. I also like strawberries and scarblegarfed a bushel of them to keep me in the mood for this drawing. I believe I singlehandedly depleted the local grocer's supply for the season. My technique, though time consuming, is simple. I start with a preliminary sketch in graphite. When my design is satisfactory, I ink the sketch, using a black, 05, pigma micron pen. I use Prismacolor pencils. Each area is a layering of about 5 different colors, going from dark to light, until the paper is totally burnished. Once the coloring is complete, I re-ink to make the line work a true black. It is then sprayed with workable fixatif to seal, protect and prevent wax bloom.
