Illustration Friday: 'Intricate'

I've had a break from watercolour and had some fun with pen and ink. There's something very satisfying in using a dip pen. The yellow background is ink too but put on with a brush, same with the rosy cheeks and petals.
More ink playing to follow...!

Hey, Jessie, you know that is just a lovely illustration! So bright and light! I am looking out of my window to grey rain and drizzle (I guess the same for you?) and seeing your picture in the thumbnail immediately made me feel better! You are always inspiring us by using other media too! I haven't used a dippy pen for ages! There are some somewhere here...I love how you're not afraid to use other media, even stuff you're not so sure of. I tend to be 'safe' all the time - I am learning alot from you Jessie, also thanks for your comments and advise, always helpful! x

Oh thankyou both for your lovely comments! When I feel stuck I use a different medium, sometimes get angry with it then something else happens quite unexpectedly! This morning I cut up an ink drawing I've just made and it's taking me down yet another road today...
