Desert Princess

Desert Princess

Ive wanted to try a black on black work for such a long time.. but being such a fuss pot when it comes to reference photos .. it took awhile until I found just the right image to try this.

It was a lot of fun working out which parts to leave the same colour as the paper that is no colour added to the paper at all.. In some places I had to remove pastel as with all the blending those spots lost that pure black of the paper..

Ive had a suggestion that I should try a leopard appy in a snow storm.. now that would be a challenge ☺
