Apres Safari in South Africa

A friend posted a photo of her husband after a game drive on safari enjoying a glass of wine. The colours were really intense and I couldn’t resist putting my spin on it using coloured pencils and ink. I hope you like it!

Wow Janet, your interpretation is amazing. I am really liking the moodiness of the scene.

I really enjoy using inks, both in the pen and ink style as well as colored inks. How do you add your inks to your colored pencils artwork?



Thank you! The friend that took the photo loves it and says it absolutely looks like her husband …she’s buying it :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi Teri,

Thanks for your lovely comments. I apply the ink (or Posca paint depending on the effect I want to achieve) then quickly work it in with a coloured pencil (similar colour) to mute it. Or, I use the ink/paint to highlight for tones/light to make parts of the drawing ‘pop’. I’m particularly pleased with this one, being able to use vibrancy and strong colour.

Very well done. Love it.
