It's incredible how much a painting changes during the penwork.
At this specific one I tried to be careful, not to overdo it, but still I see something I could have let out. Often I go back to older paintings to see how I did something I think of as good. No secret that I love making a sort of 3D effect. It's quite a job to figure out what to do with the black pen without overdoing and not repeating myself all the time. Still, I very much enjoy doing this sort of paintings. They are both playful and colorful which suits me alot.
Anything you would've done differently?
I still keep getting new ideas for this kind of paintings, but what I imagine isn't easy to draw. I might have a try though.
If one look at the background and especially the blue color, does it look messy or more like it's giving life to the piece? I can't decide. I would love it to be plain blue, but that's impossible using watercolors.
All in all I'm pleased with the result and above all it makes me smile.
