First completed full size illustration in about three and a half months.
Very happy with the outcome though, so I think it was worth the wait to finish it.
I had a lot of fun with this piece. Especially the ivy and fungus on the tree.
Original is alcohol based marker, watercolour ink and watersoluble pencil on 15" x 11" watercolour paper.

This evening I've been trying to rescue this piece. Watercolour paints are deceptively very different to watercolour ink that I usually use. Luckily one of the things I love about traditional media is the how you cope with mistakes. I guess it somewhat compensates for my inability to test new techniques before diving into them.
