Art Description

Drawing: Ink, Ballpoint Pen, Watercolor, Acrylic on Paper.

Tom was going to be the greatest botanist of our time, until he turned out to be allergic to pollen, and antihistamines.
This small portrait features a little amber colored bird man in a grey-blue tweed jacket (with obligatory brown leather elbow patches) and a sky blue sweater that was probably knitted by his mum. He scratches his head in mild consternation as two butterflies settle on his arm and shoulder. The piece features a lovely, delicately leaky ink wash. Tom has a bright beady black eye and a beak finished in gorgeous vibrant orange and contrasting blue.

The piece will ship securely packaged in an envelope, sleeved and attached to a backing board.

This artwork was created using neocolor crayons, watercolor paints and acrylic inks over an initial ballpoint pen drawing in black ink. The paper I use is hot press, white, 100% cotton rag, acid free and expected to last an extraordinarily long time.
