A piece for a friend, who was
on this site... you know fall, it's blanket weather.
The cure is a full moon, tea, and a nice thick wool blanket. Just a mental image of you that popped into my head, from your prompt about "middle of nature" and "neutral colors."
After a couple of sketches, I codified it rather well in my mind - a broadly neutralized color palette of indigo, ochre, carmine, silver and a dull sea cyan green whose marker I don't remember, all neutralized on a tan paper and charged with chinese white. The composition owes a severe debt to all that Eugenio Carmi art I've been looking at! Gerald Scarfe character, Art Noveau blanket, Eugenio Carmi composition... eclecticity is fun <3
I'm very proud that the moon circle was drawn freehand X3 I love working on toned paper, and toning stuff under watercolors - the bottom carmine swath is entirely copic, the blanket is copic with watercolor highlights, the socks are random alcohol markers I found around the house, the moon is watercolor over a copic undersketch, and the sky and lynx herself are entirely watercolor.
