My current piece is this, what will eventually be an inked and watercolored (mayhaps some color pencil) illustration of a random place in Venice (using as a reference a photo I took during a visit years ago). I plan on giving this piece to my fiance Dave's mother for Christmas this year.
There is a bit of a story behind my reasons for doing a piece on Venice. Apparently, Dave's dad did a watercolor for friends of theirs years ago, and his mom requested one for herself... unfortunately he passed away before he was able to make it for her. =( So hopefully it wont be considered inappropriate for me to do this for her... but I've heard her mention it more than once.. and Dave thinks it is a good idea. All one can do is hope she agrees. =)
I'll post more as this one progresses!
