With the holiday season coming up quickly, I decided to make a Christmas card.
Tried to capture the quietness of the woods at night, and originally was going to have a rabbit in the illustration, until I found out they only come out around dusk and dawn, so I used a fox instead.
You were so right Alison! It was a little counter intuitive ( and scary!) to cover everything up with ink!
Then I scanned my dried piece and brought into Photoshop to make a few refinements and to add the shadows of the trees which didn't show up on the original. Below is the untouched and wet version.
Below is the final with the text that I hand wrote and scanned in.
Thanks for a great class and fun project Alison!
