Ice Princess Original Watercolour
This is a fairytale ink drawing. As a child, I loved reading about snow queens and Narnia. The idea of lands where winter reigns all year round was magical. Of course, it’s a bit different as an adult after your first year trying to cope with getting to work in a snow storm!
Still, I wanted to capture some of that magic with this illustration. I started off with dip pen and ink, then added the painting element with watercolours, and then finished with white pen and ink.
I’m using fabriano pittura paper. I don’t know if you can see the ridges too well in the picture, but I really love the way they take ink. I discovered it in college and I still love working with it now from time to time.
