Portfolio, Santiago de Compostella

The incredible rococo facade of the cathedral looks daunting to start off with so look for repeated themes and shapes and let the pen meander across the paper to create the ornament. The rough Khadi paper is ideal for this fairy loose style and the slight imperfections in the surface enhance the effect. The toning is all done with the Rotring Art Pen and a water brush so large areas can be completed quite quickly.
