I placed a Blick order a few days ago for new paper, and threw some new pens on the order too! I couldn't resist! The order came today, and I had the sketch for this illo already down on my old paper, I thought I'd try some of the new pens for inking it.
Although I'm not real fond of the background color I chose (I should have gone with a pukey green color), I do like the way the kids turned out.
I need to do some more experimentation!! This time with the new paper too (Hot Press!)
