Afterglo gebruik ik niet veel en toch is het een mooie tangle. U ziet  hier het patroon omringd door Sprigs, 5C Aura en Vivid. Ik heb getekend op een grijze tile en heel veel krijtpotlood gebruikt om meer contrasten te bekomen en een beetje afgewerkt met een groen kleurpotlood.

I didn’t use Afterglo very much but it is a nice tangle.  Here you can see this pattern, surrounded by Sprigs, 5C Aura and Vivid. I have taken a grey tile and used a lot of charcoal to become more contrasts and finished with a little bit of green colourpencil.

    Ria, I love how you did this in the irregular grid! So pretty. Great contrast, color, shading, and highlights. Nicely done!

      Thank you Sidney for your kind words. I like drawing on grey, contrasts, shading and white highlights are easier to make on that kind of paper.

      Dank je wel Annemarie. Soms heb ik ook minder inspiratie en dan kijk ik in mijn boek met al mijn vorige tiles, vooral om naar de composities te kijken. Dit soort tekening had ik al eerder eens gedaan maar met totaal verschillende tangles, daarom koos ik er nu voor om Afterglo gewoon in het midden te zetten. Ik vind het leuk dat je het mooit vindt.

      Thank you Michele for your kind feedback, I like drawing on grey or tan paper, shading is always nicer and making highlights with a charcoal looks better than on white paper.
