Autumn Romance, Third Phase
As Jim and I are moving much furniture in our house these days, and rearranging our living spaces so that he can have a studio of his own, the progress on this piece is slow but steady. I "wove" lace curtains with the help of a white permanent gel pen from Staples (wonderful for stark, white, fine-point details!), put in the lit areas of the couple's hair, stroked in the mid-layer of her sweater, colored the napkins (Payne's Gray and Shiraz Inktense). Also began the shadow details in the wineglasses' stems, and used Payne's Gray Inktense pencil to shadow the table's paper cover, as well as the wooden block holding the menu. I'm loving the opacity of the Dr. Martin's Bombay white ink. I wish I could scroll forward to next week's postings so I could see how this turns out!
