28/05: TIGGER - WIP (cont.d)

We've had a 'bitty' couple of days - loss of internet connection (again) and catching up with things at home/in the garden after our few days away ...... so I decided not to work on the current commission till Monday and to carry on with Tigger at odd times between the 'boring household stuff'.

So here's a photo I took this afternoon.  I have done a little more work since it was taken - smoothing out the body fur colours and trying to darken the background a little but haven't photographed the latest stage - the background is kind of trial and error so I hope I don't screw the whole picture up by 'playing'.   I've stuck with the black backing paper for now but don't have a sheet large enough to support the piece of drafting film at the moment - hence the paler edges you see in this photo.  


We have a busy day tomorrow - visiting our respective Mums, my horse and Richard in hospital so I won't be updating this for a while.    Hope you all have a good weekend and the weather stays kind to us all.

Beautiful fur detail and I love the way you have different colours in the fur.

Thanks Sally - as you can't layer cps on film in the usual way I find it works best for me to use lots of different colours and tiny pencilstrokes ... still feeling my way a bit on film though.

Thanks Grahame - I hope so too :o)

It's coming along great, Sue. I like the drama of it and your bold, strong colours. Interesting to read about the choices you're making along the way :)
