In Church and Mistress Pate



Thought I might share some of the work, that I have been busy with for whst seems a very long time. These are just a few illustrations for a book that I have very nearly finished for a charity in Hackney.

Nice pictures, Zara!

I've seen some more of these on your GCI portfolio, haven't I?
But what I just can't figure out precisely is what kind of technique you use. Is it watercolour? Or digital? Or a bit of both?

I'm afraid that I'm not technical at all. I'm a slave to the dip-pen and I colour up with Acrylic ink and gouache. I love the vibrancy of the inks contrasting with the matt of the gouache. I'm guessing that you use watercolour and ink?

...and gouache a little too. And sometimes I'm trying - with hesitation - to find my way in the digital world, but I still prefer the handicraft. I'm really much of a "digiterate"!
