This pen and ink was taken from a reference photo over on WetCanvas. I had planned to use it for a Maxfield Parrish warm-up project - the colors in the photo are delightful. Trying to emulate him, I decided to do a pen and ink first, trying to be as thorough as he was.
Having done that step, I've now decided that this isn't a good choice for me. So, being thorough has saved me from investing time in something that I am not likely to be happy with. I would enjoy playing with the colors, but I don't think I could bring real "punch" to them or the subject.
Busy day today...I'm off to try and find something else.
