I've been working on the Rhino….
I actually wasn't sure if I liked him, but he's growing on me.
When I begin a project like this it quite often just evolves… I didn't really know where it was going to take me.
Was it going to be bright fabrics…? was it going to be fanciful…. was I going to illustrate it…. Gees, I never know…
However, yes, it's evolved into an interesting piece….
I'm enjoying creating pieces of fabric using the inks on pre existing fabrics…
In particular, I was worried about creating the side part of his tummy….. but in fact it was quite easy… there is a lot more to add to it, but I'm rather pleased with the effect. You can just see a hint of circles in the fabric and I was able to add them with brown pen.
The legs are both heavily illustrated… so they will take a while to do.
