Day Six: A Very Simple Penguin

As an illustrator, much of my work has been extraordinarily detailed. I work to an assigned size on an assigned subject, to meet a client's specifications. This flicker and sunflowers is an example of the kind of work I have done commercially.
Which brings us to Day Six, a wonderfully simple Penguin, done in about fifteen minutes with a Pitt artist pen, brush tip, and quick washes of watercolor. I cannot describe how freeing it is to work in this way, so I won't even try.
After years of excruciatingly meticulous work, I feel like a bird let out of a cage! (An image for another day.)
