illustration Friday - "Alphabets" No.4



I'm really enjoying working in a limited palette
stripped back
just the marks as they were made
it all their glorious simplicity
their happy accidents

particularly enjoying the different sort of marks created by dip pen nibs and brushes.
up to now I've been using black ink and colouring it up in PS
this is the real McCoy
bought over the weekend
real red ink!
