Golden Gate Park – Color and Illustration Draft

Nov 6, 2014 | Drawings, Illustrations

This is a test of whether to treat the illustration’s coloring by hand or to use Photoshop. This is a preliminary sketch for an Illustrated children’s book on Golden gate Park and not as some have postulated, a rendering of my father’s issues with squirrels. The illustration is done in graphite and charcoal on vellum – 9 x 12 inches. The colorized version is scanned then color is added by layers in Photoshop in this example.

Media: Graphite and charcoal on vellum, colored in Photoshop
Dimensions: 9" x 12"
