Editorial about children experiencing gender confusion due to cultural pressures. I had the idea of mobile with male and female symbols swirling around the child. Gouache, watercolor, pencil and ink.
Here is my process:
Laying down washes…
Adding masking fluid over the child. More paint washes are applied and then the masking is erased.
I go in with a quill pen and india ink and start defining all of the elements. After that, pencil and charcoal are layered with more paint!
