It's new release day at The East Wind, and today's is "Wisteria". It's an image that took me a while to do because I was trying to add quite a bit of detail to it. I printed it out at 5"x7" so I had enough space to colour the flowers the way I wanted to.

After it was done, I realized that printing it that big left me with not very many options of finishing it. It's the size of a big card already, so I just matted it on black and decided to leave it as is for now.

I coloured it completely with Copics, using techniques from a couple different Create & Learn classes at Kit & Clowder. I added the detail on the wood fence, as well as her hanging chair. I left the colour of the concrete under her chair uneven because I felt it looked a little more realistic than a smooth even finish.
