Plant fairy – work in progress

Plant fairy. copics and other markers on paper. June 2014

This time I wanted to experiment with my greens. I’ve got several shades of green, and the very smooth paper makes it possible to mix or blend the greens even on the paper itself. As you can see here, I focussed on the upper half of my sketch, I had two reasons for that:

  • I wanted to fill in the background and therefore preferred a smaller format (half of a DIN A4 page)
  • I considered the upper half of the sketch with the plant fairy’s head to be more interesting as the lower half. The leaves around her head would provide me with the opportunity to go through all my greens. In the process of doing it I found out that I actually don’t need any additional greens although I had been playing with the idea of buying some.

It doesn’t look like it but the background consists of warm grays, with some spots of red between. I might as well add some “real” browns here and there.

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.
