How "Autumn Garden" came to be

Repurposing, sort of.
I had a scarf hanger but the hanger part broke off. I liked the shapes of it and decided to use it as a template. It fit on an Opus tile!
The scarf hanger on the back of an Opus tile, 10.5" square.
I used Inktense and Aquatone pencils to do washes in the various sections:

Then I began the tangling in ink.

Ink drawing completed, copper metallic ink in a few places, colored pencil added, a lot of fine tuning, and it's done.

  1. This is a masterpiece Margaret. So rich and ornate and warming. A beautiful testament to autumn.

    I'm working only with autumn colours at the moment, as I have done through each season this year, and it's by far my favourite so far!
