Dog Series—C: More Sketching on Pre-Stenciled BackgroundsDecember 17, 2010
Another short post about dogs and sketching. See the full post.
Above: a Chihuahua sketched with Faber-Castel Pitt Calligraphy pen on a pre-stenciled (acrylic paint with a mouth atomizer) fold-out spread. The left edge of the fold out has a piece of gold foil collaged on it. The center of the spread where the signature is sewn is at the far right edge. There is glassine taped at the top of this spread and folded over to protect the previous spread. The paper is Rives BFK and the journal is approximately 8 x 10 inches. The fold out portion isn't quite 8 inches wide.
Another short post on my dog series in the collage and sketch journal. Here the pen was wearing out and when it does that it starts to give a gray-ed out line that is as attractive, but for different reasons, as the full-bodied line.
