I posted the preliminary sketch of “Mercy ” a few weeks ago but here is the final. I’m pleased with how well it turned out and think the green leaves are a nice touch. As much as I like working in full color, I have to say that I really like working in black and white with a hint of color. The simplicity fascinates me and now I want to do more ink drawings.
For the longest time, I’ve been afraid to work in ink because of the potential for permanent mistakes. Fortunately I’ve gained a lot of confidence using my awesome black brush pen to create random sketches on church bulletins every Sunday. Hopefully there will be more ink drawings to follow.
