SNAP!
is the theme of this week's Illustration Friday. My first thought was of playing the card game Snap...which we love to do in this family (preferably after dinner so the table is cleaned off otherwise it can be quite a mess!) But illustrating that epic scenario just seemed overwhelming. Then I got this idea "Oh yeah! Snap, like fingers!" Pretty obvious, I guess, but it took me a few days to make that mental leap- oh well! I'm trying out a new pen, an indian ink fibre brush and having fun with the line variation.

It's wonderful. You've captured each essential line in perfect proportion. Your style in line art marries well with your lovely paintings.

The variation in the line weight is wonderful. Looks like you've found a great new tool.

By the way - you should ignore whoever told you you use too much green. Paint what you know and love - it may not appeal to everyone, but what does? And some of us happen to love green.
