    I loved scrolling through .. and the change from transparent to fully ‘clothed’

    My favourites are the first and third.
    I enjoy line work that has erased marks used as line amongst more line work. So there becomes little glitchy trash marks that still seem to offer explanation or feel. Then run that image through a printing process like relief! (sigh!)

    • Each of these is a layer that combined makes the final one. But like you, I like the drawings that include the glitches! And I really only ever use an eraser as a drawing tool.

    Fascinating to watch the progression. Interesting how the shadow changes. Good one. xox

    Lovely cup, and a great teaching sequence. So, eventually you took the first layer, the outline out? What happened to the second layer, the khaki one? Anyway, you’ve reminded me about the outline business and given me something sensible to do, I was going to do moody skies or beach-after-storm, but it is way too cold out there,

    • Jenny I actually kept the khaki layer in for the final image in the sequence ­ you can drop the layers in or out at will. I didn¹t publish every combination ­ too tedious!
