School Lunch with color

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!)

Great job with the color too! It's nice to see what you did with it after the line stage. I like it :)
