You might be interested to know about the print, the bits that look drawn are a kind of printing too. You ink up a piece of thinnish paper (fairly lightly, do test it first), lay it on the artwork, and draw on the back. It's a little hard to see what you're doing, but you get a really nice soft line quality, and you can rub softly to get shading too. I did this one completely freehand, but you can, for example, draw over a photocopy of a drawing you've already done, to make a nice print of it in a different style.

It's a kind of printing you can easily try at home, you just need paper, printing ink (or oil paint), a brayer and a piece of glass or plastic to roll the ink on. Lots of fun - give it a go!

I added a tiny bit of white conte pastel to the bird, but the rest is all printing ink.

And thanks Lanysmiles Smiley

The peacock is simply stunning.  The design, composition and stitching are all so perfect.  I love this piece!  Very, very nice job, jemimah.  And the rest of the package is so thoughtful and lovely as well!

Oh that's awesome! I've done printing with lino and rubber blocks but the drawing sounds sweet. I think I'll have to give this one a go.

oooh that a great technique! Its so strange but a friend of mine went to a workshop at a convention on how to do backgrounds and this is it! The exact same thing! (Well except with pencils and charcoal instead of paint)
Seeing one (well not in person, but close up on the internet) makes it easier to visualise/understand. Ooh maybe you should do a tut for the challenge for this! It has such a lovely effect Smiley
