Winter Whimsy; mixing media
Inspired by the urban wildlife of Toronto, I wanted to illustrate some “critters” enjoying the winter weather.
The challenge for me is always trying to find different ways to combine the traditional ink line work that I love to do with texture and digital painting.
What seems to work best is to work with less colour which allows me to highlight the line work. Then I can have fun with
painted or photographed textures and pops of bright colour and bring the main characters more into focus. I look forward to a lot more experimentation with colour and line in 2017!
Wishing you a fun-filled winter and a very Happy New Year!
