Illustration Friday : PERSPECTIVE

This is the first week I've participated and it's been great fun squeezing time to do a new illustration.
The above piece is mixed media on Arches HP paper. This is the first time I've used that paper (after months of going into my local art shop and staring at it and touching it and generally being a bit of a paper geek) and it was lovely. Smooth and took the paint and water well.

I don't know whether this is a thing with that make of paper or if it was just a reaction to my paint, but this picture smells of biscuits...


Probably just me....


  1. YES! I mean no - its not just you! Ive been using that particular arches for a while now and as soon as you put a bit of water on it...poof! a biscuity aroma! phew...not just me! :-)

  2. Thank goodness for that I thought I was having some sort of cookie induced fit or something! Good to know I'm not alone!


  3. You are off to a great start. Great idea for perspective and very well executed.
