I've returned to an old subject but with a different approach. Usually, once I do an illustration I can move on to the next one. When I can't move on, when I feel compelled to try it again, I know something is wrong. Such is the case with "Tink," an illustration I did back in March. I was very happy with the first illustration but I still felt compelled to take another crack at it.
This time I simplified everything. I worked primarily in watercolor and color pencil with just a little gouache. She looks much more innocent and "fairy-like" than my first attempt.
OK, I think I can move on now.
