Illustration Fri. "Poise"


"Her legendary poise was about to be put to the test ..."
I'm still experimenting with media. This one's a blend of watercolor, gouache, and pastel on hot-pressed watercolor paper. I like this mixture a lot.

Nice to see another IF from you! Great expression the old dear's face! I really like HP paper too - sadly can't buy it here in Malaysia:(

Hotpressed watercolor paper is my favorite. Love this illustration--I can totally imagine this character is action.

I love how detailed and textured it it. Now she seemed poised by what will be hysterical laughter from all around her...lol! Great work!

Hi David, How's it going? Thanks for the comment. I hadn't noticed that you were doing Illustration Friday, but it's great to see more of your work. This one is my favorite - very funny (yet subtle) expression on her face.
