Our Lil' Punkin' (sold)


Art: Our Lil' Punkin' (sold) by Artist Shelly Bedsaul
Ichabod Crane found her in the pumpkin patch, cold, lost and frightened. He adopted her straight away. Kindness and love turned her into this precious little thing. He dotes on her, the perfect little lady. 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.
