Hilly Landscape 1

I drew the right side first, just lines and colors. Then I wondered what the left side would be like, so I thought about that and drew it. I like both sides, separately and together. When I look at it now, I find myself feeling pulled into the wilderness-y right side, like I want to go walking there. Then maybe go to the house on the left side for tea.

Each is drawn on a Crane's ecru card. I like the pebbly, mottled texture that Copics make on this card in this color. It shows up very well in this drawing.

A few months later, a friend asked me to draw a version for her - see Hilly Landscape 2.

Copic colors used: Y15,19,38, YR21, V09+C7, B41+BV31, B14,29,32,39,41, W1,3,5,7, YG23+B41, YG91+G21, G07+G17, G07,28, BG000,05,32,45, YG23+W3, YG95,97,99, E21,33,44, E41+BG000. Note, the "+" means that one color was colored on top of the other, making a new color.
Paper: ecru Crane's card approx. 4x6"
