Lynx part deux

So here's the second "interpretive drawing" I did of the Old Man of the North. I wanted to use complimentary colours (yellow and purple). I basically slapped on a mixture of yellow paints and impasto gel unto the paper, and used a palette knife to create some peaks and texture to it. I drew the lynx using my Shin-Han Twin Touch markers. It was easy to get the fur detail because of the impasto; I just had to let the pen "graze" the peaks. You can notice the shininess of the impasto at the bottom of the drawing.

  1. Holy cow woman, when people say they "slapped" together something, it usually means a half-assed effort, but you've got a masterpiece there. Love the texture on this one. :)

  2. **BLUSH** Thanks soulsis! :) I just hope I can pull a third "tour de force". I'm running out of ideas for this project. LOL! The last one will be a reverse-drawing in charcoal, hopefully giving it a "sfumato" look.


Thanks for visiting my blog and taking the time to leave me a comment! :)
