"Summer Foole"


Art: Summer Foole by Artist Shelly Bedsaul
This is the first of a series of seasonal fooles. Summer is in her prime, fertile, abundant and self assured. 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. The substrate is Crescent archival rag board.
