'Sophie'

A very good friend of my eldest daughter recently had her first child. My daughter commissioned me to do a piece of art of her name Sophie. Sophie's mum likes blues and browns.
"Sophie" - a baby gift; (c)2016 Margaret Bremner
Tangles: Blooming Butter, Crescent Moon, Ginili, Pearlz, Phuds, Pixioze, Sanibelle, Tipple and elements of Drupe,
plus some leaves and drawn gems.

It's done on 'kraft brown' Stonehenge paper. The matted size (shown here) is 6"x8". Framed it's 11"x14".

I did the name on scrap paper with a calligraphy brush, tidied it up, and transferred the outline to the art paper. The little hook on the 'p' is a happy accident due to the blue wash I did in the beginning.

I used blue acrylic wash for some initial random shapes and lines. Besides Sakura micron pens in blue, brown, and dark brown, I used Pitt brush pens in similar colors, another pen with lighter blue ink, and colored pencils.

Here's a photo of Sophie and her parents.
