I’ve been over the moon this week as my first piece of artwork has been listed … and sold!
I’m already working on number 2 :)
I’m sure that you all know about line art so I won’t bore you with a lengthy description but when I had completed a recent work I decided, now that I am a freelance [insert today’s job title here], that I would list it for sale thinking that it would be around for a while – but no, it sold that very same day!
How chuffed and excited was I?! (Answer = very!)
Anyway, here is what I made and what is now in my lovely customer’s home…
Line Art by John Bloodworth
Here is a closer look.
Neat, isn’t it?
Anyway, spurred on by this exciting event I am already working on a second design.
This time it will involve coloured shading and has a dimensional basket weave pattern.
(forgive the quality of the first couple of photos as I was doing this late at night…)
There’s a lot of line plotting in this one!
Inking the design in takes a steady hand and some intense concentration!
Few! Made it…
And now for some shading.
I’m working on Bristol Board this time as it gives such lovely crisp white base and aids superb blendability to the pencils.
Number two design is currently spoken for but there will be more in the future I’m sure.
Anyway, that’s some of what has been going on in my world this week – just thought that I would share.
Hope you’ve had a good week too :)
Thanks for reading and I’ll see you again soon.
