Happy Sunday Morning Everyone!
I worked several long hours on this piece and it is finally finished! Yeah!
It's often difficult for me to know when to stop embellishing...I could keep adding details forever I think! :-)
I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. I definitely learned A LOT with this piece and I'm really getting comfortable with etching the paper to bring out details, something I have not seen a lot of people do - it's fun to be using a technique that not a lot of people use, since I really have to push
myself to develope my own style.
I have to give a shout out to Rebecca over at Penny Lane Ink for some inspiration with patterning and the medalion on his chest in this piece. I never leave without being inspired when I visit Rebecca's place! If you haven't visited her, please take the time and treat yourself!
Hope you are all having a relaxing Sunday, and get the chance to visit all of the wonderful artists that participate in the Sunday Sketches group over at dear Sophia's place!
