House on Thistle Downs Drive ~ WIP 3
Sorry to be MIA. After my last post I was hit with acute bronchitis and with my existing lung problems it really took me down. Yesterday was the first day I felt human again so I was able to get back to this project. This is Micron pen and black Sharpie on 144# Yupo. I ran into some major smudging problems which I didn't expect but decided to work with it rather than against it. (see some of the effects on the roofs, etc.). I've sprayed this with a few coats of Krylon workable fixative and it's ready for the alcohol ink. The workable fixative didn't entirely cure the smudge problem so I have no idea what will happen when I turn the ink loose on this. It's either going to be really cool or really awful. Stay tuned....
