Illustration Friday: Sizzle

It has been a while since my last post, had a show open two weeks ago (more info on that on my other blog), I was excited to get back to these IF drawings, but didn't expect this one from today to become the topic.

I spent a few hours sitting in my backyard today drawing. This was the view from my vantage point, and although the sun was warm here in southern California. The wind was brisk and the shade structure I was under cooled the light in this drawing. So I lit the torch, it sizzled to life and seemed to be the only spot with color other than the gorgeous sky.

This is predominantly an ink on white paper drawing , until I got anxious to finish as my son was ready to head inside... so I finished with conte.
