Butterfly girl spreads her wings
When I begin new piece, the theme or central idea are not pre determined. As you can see in the images below, I start with a simple pencil outline and then let the details reveal themselves as I work further with ink and patterns. I start inking the focal point of the piece first. Once I’m happy with that, I start working on the background and slowly make my way to the foreground. I use a mix of 0.1mm, 0.3mm and 0.5mm fine point pens. The completed work is as much a reveal for me as I hope it will be for the viewer.
