Art: Almost Winter (sold) by Artist Shelly Bedsaul
Most of the fall color is gone. The harvests are in and it's time to start planning for Thanksgiving over a hot mug of coffee. 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.
