Saint Lydwine of Schiedam
Just experimenting with 'colouring' my art with a single layer of grey. This piece is a 'medaillon'-shape introductory thing (like the elaborate initials in medieval manuscripts) to one of the saint's stories that I have been doing the last few months. For me, this is a local saint. Of course I have been spicing up the classic stories. The wolf was entirely my idea.
Anyway, I used to be quite addicted to working with zip-a-tone in the analogue era as I would have liked to have my stuff published in full colour, but could not. Too damn expensive. So that became an alternative to colour. Now anything is possible, but I'd like to try a minimal approach for clarity's sake.
