Hallo dear friends,
I read Aidan Koch's Blonde Woman recently & was intrigued with the idea of non-sequential graphic pages, where the focus of the page is an emotive one rather than a sequential narrative per se. I drew this page in mixed media and would possibly like to expand it into a series: 'I Dreamt'. We'll see what happens. The experience was very positive. I realised when I didn't have to focus so much on story, I could play more with space and quite naturally the gutters disappeared and 'scenes' flowed into eachother.
For this page, I experimented with mixed media (graphite, gouache and coloured pencil). I really liked the sensitivity of marks and colour one could achieve with the pencils. But the coloured pencil doesn't scan that well - lots of colour and texture detail gets lost in the process. And some areas appear 'white-out', which is a bit disappointing. But that is part of the 'reproductive process' right?
Take care & have a lovely week
