View Full Version : WDE 25 Nov - Really Late but - 'Do Not Disturb'

i started this one the right week, then my arm froze up and I've been in pain since. I had managed 2 hours - I've finally finished it.
'Do Not Disturb'
Derwent Aquatone (background)
A5 HW Cartridge Paper
4 hours total
Here it is at 2 hours: (where I had to stop 2 weeks ago)
I had a lot of trouble keeping my whites white :( . Coloursoft can be smudgy and I'd used the black to lay out the marks first and even with a fix spray everything just seemed to go grey. No white would cover it. Lesson, either don't use a black first or use a different type of dark/black that doesn't smudge.

Sorry for the hard lesson you had to learn. What a shame no white will cover it....maybe there will be someone come along and give some secret trick for you to use!!

What a beauty! Thaks for showing the 2-hour mark. The fur is incredible - specially how the black merges with the lighter yellow/gold/white. Bravo!
Hope you feel really better soon!

Lin this is amazing thanks for showing the progress as well
I love the rich colours you got

Glad you finished...well captured!

Actually I liked the effect that you got from the smudgy black. The bluish-grey portions on the fur make it look like the black spots are merging with the white, resulting in an incredible effect on the fur.
Loved this one!

Very good Lin:clap: :clap:

There are two little spots of white, on the rim of the upper ear and by the eye. They sing because all the other whites in the fur are greyed. I think it works so well Lin! Thank you for sharing all your hard work since last WDE on it, especially with such a painful arm.
