Post square 012413 ~ Visiting Lincoln
So, what is the blobby pattern in the background? Here's what I did. It's something I've wanted to try for a while. I found a photograph I took of snow that was melting around gravel, cropped a detail of it to a square and printed the image on a piece of bristol board. I drew the composition from the Post photo over the print. Then I did my random pencil thing, choosing two at a time and using the darkest pencil of the two on the dark blobs and the lightest one over it to color in that section. It has a sort of spacey 3-D look to it, don't you think?
