Butterflies' Rest

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.

Garnet Colour - WIP

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.

Forest Clearing - WIP

I've not had much time recently to work on any personal art, but I've been able to snatch the odd hour here and there to work on this piece.
Still a long way to go.
