This drawing gave me trouble. I finally figured out that the composition wasn’t working and after I cropped it, things became better.
I wanted to use shades of grey this time round, rather than just black and white as in my previous book illustrations. First try didn’t go that well:
I went back to the text and found that there’s supposed to be a newspaper on the table under her, so that helped with the background.
It’s not finished yet, but mostly there. Time to move onto a new drawing.
